Social Life and Diabetes

Posted on March 22, 2018

"My day is good--have been extra busy with activities I was unable to do before---so am enjoying a more social life---my hip, after fall, seems to be healing itself. Am enjoying the warmer weather, watching a lot of rare birds, likely just passing thru, on migration route--life is good! Hope all is well with everyone!!" -A member on DiabetesTeam
