Hello

Posts: 0

Hello everyone. I am dragongirl, and I recently found out that I am a type 2 diabetic. I am not the only one in my family that has diabetes since my dad has type 2 diabetes as well. Even though he has it sometimes I feel alone, so I decided to look into maybe a community for a little bit of support and might know what I am going through. I would turn to my fiance, but since he is not a diabetic he just can't seem to understand.
On a happier note: I am currently enaged and planning a wedding for next December. I enjoy crocheting and writing and planning on possibly making an etsy account to sell some of my stuff online. Anyway, that's me. Nice to meet all of you.

Hi Dragongirl,

I'm Karen, and I am part of the small but mighty DiabetesSisters staff. I have lived with Type 1 since 1979. I am thrilled that you found us! I beleive we all need support on this journey, no matter how short or long it has been since our diagnosis.

Have a look around. Check out other posts on our Forums and in our Blogs section. Have a look at our Expert Advice and Library for tips and education. And if you are interested in in-person peer support. check out our PODS Meetups tab and our Event Calendar. We may have a group that meets near you - if not we also have a Virtual PODS that meets on-line.

Let us know if you have any questions!!
