Hi, I've just found this group and signed up. I'm 82 and have had diabetes for over 40 years. During that time I've learned a lot about it that I hope may be helpful to others.
As my first message I would say, particularly to the young people recently diagnosed - DON'T PANIC. DON'T WORRY. I'm still here and fully active, and hope to be for a long time yet! If I can do it anyone can. I'm looking forward to some interesting and helpful chats.
