I just wanted to introduce myself since as of today I am the new Diabetes forum Moderator.
On top of being a type 1 diabetic, I also have Crohns, Fibromyalgia, Ostioarthritis, Asthma, Migrains, High blood pressure, and yes I could go on, Now you know why I use the name Pin Cushion! LOL
I haven't been as active here as I should have been in the past, but I promiss to from now on. I bet I will get more out of this then I give by just being around more.
I use humor as my biggest weapon to battle my ailments. I believe that 90% of being as healthy is in my state of mind. Oh sure, I, like everyone else have my down days, but most days you wouldn't even be able to tell I wasn't "normal". Gee did I just use the N word?!?!?!
I am not an expert on any of ailments, I learn new things all the time , all I have to do is keep my eyes, ears and mind open and some how it seeps in.
Please remember what I post here like all the others are just my thoughts or opinions take what helps and leave the rest. If I can be of any help to anyone please feel free to ask and I will do my best to be of help, more times then not, it will be an encouraging word or maybe just share a smile if I can.
OK gang lets see what we can do to make this the most active forum at HW!
