My thanks too, I have a great GP, but not a great one for D, a practice nurse who is a good administrator, and you guys on here who pointed me in the right direction. I know forums take some work to run smoothly, you all do a brilliant job, it appears seamless

Big Big thank you you were there when I needed you most. Northerner was so helpful, it gave me confidence to tackle things that had been worrying me for some time.

My heros are my husband, daughter, mum, dad, brother and my brothers gf/my best friend.

If it wasn't for them i could still be in hospital, in a coma or worse. They have been driving me everywhere, giving me confidence in myself, helping me feel stronger when i'm feeling down and giving up their own time to make sure that i am ok.
I couldn't have got through this without them, and i hope they know that.

I also want to give a big thanks to everyone on here, without help and advice from you all i would have been at the end of my tether, you've all really helped me understand things a bit better and do the right thing so thank you all.

And one more thanks is to my amazing diabetes nurses who have really made every effort to make sure im ok and give me praise. Elaine and Maxine from Sheffield diabetes centre you are truelly angels...

Soppyness over lol

'Admin' was the person who originally persuaded Diabetes UK that they should support a UK forum. It took her two years to get things set up, and the forum launched on November 14th 2008 (World Diabetes Day, and Fred Banting's birthday). She was a Type 1 who had had it for 35 years and never met another Type 1.

I joined on the 15th November 2008, and as I was a regular poster from the start, Admin asked if I would like to be a moderator. I agreed, and then in April 2009 she asked if I would take over as Admin as she was expecting a baby and couldn't spend the time on the forum she hoped to. Basically, since then I have been Admin - she finally handed over the reins completely later in 2009 due to too many things going on in her life.
