Support Groups

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. My blood sugar dropped down yesterday to 26, really scared me. As always, after my blood sugar went back up, I was totally wore out all day. All I did yesterday, was nap out. Thank God, it did not drop at all today. Was very happy about that. My new doctor, Dr. Huffman, told me about two support groups. Believe me, I truly need some support. One of the groups is called Dmindfulness, it is for men and women with diabetes. The meetings are on the 3rd Thursday of every month at my doctors office. It is a practice that helps you live intentionally with diabetes in a way that promotes health, reduces stress, and improves your weight .The meetings are from 6:00PM-7:00PM The other group is for women with diabetes, it is called DiabetesSisters. The meetings are on the 1st Thursday of every month from 6:30pm-8:00pm. They are held at a local church. The meetings provide a safe nurturing environment for women with diabetes to take time away from others, truly focus on their health, and offer each other supportive advice. There is also going to be a diabetes expo at that local church on November 8th. My Dr. will be one of the speakers there. There will be several interactive workshops there, and also learning stations. The great thing is both support groups, and the expo, are all free. I am going to start attending the support groups in November, and I will be going to the expo. Really looking forward to all of it. Eddie said he will take me, and then come back and get me. Pray that he will keep his word, this is important to me.
