The internet has opened up so many new opportunities for us, and this is certainly true for the way we manage our health.  A lot of this still exists only potentially, as most people haven't really haven't taken much advantage of all that is out there.  Knowledge is power, and when it comes to our own health, it's a power that is certainly required if we're going to be able to direct our own welfare as we need to.

Learning a lot about diabetes is no small task indeed, and I have already spent thousands of hours reading, researching, thinking, and writing about this very complex topic.  The journey is far from done though as there is so much more to learn.  

I am a diabetic though and there's nothing like getting the thing to motivate you to go out and learn more about it.  I tend to be pretty passionate about things though and diabetes has become my new passion, and a lot of this probably has to do with the fact that my particular case is a difficult one to treat, but this has only served to inspire me further.

So I wanted to come up with a place where I could collect and compile my thoughts on type 2 diabetes in one central location, and the result is this site.  My goal here is simply to share my ideas and look to engage readers into thinking about our disease more, and in doing so they will be giving themselves an opportunity to perhaps understand this very complex disease more.

I'm looking to speak to those who are newly diagnosed, those who are already very knowledgeable about the disease, and everyone in between.  In fact, as knowledgeable as you may feel you are, I'm sure that a lot of the material will still challenge you, as I continue to be challenged, as there is so much more to learn.

So I do have a rather unique perspective on diabetes and I eagerly look forward to sharing it as the site evolves, and as my perspective on it evolves as well.  I hope you will join me on this ongoing journey, and assuming you are here because you are a fellow diabetic, I wish you all the best on your own diabetic journey.

I also want to give a shout out to all my friends at the Diabetes Daily Forum, this is truly the best diabetic community on earth and I've really enjoyed all the time that I have spent there.  I've had many great discussions there and this site continues to serve as an inspiration to me.

To your health!
