    Hope you all are keeping well.

    My life style over the past few months has been so bad.
    Have to now start getting things back on track and no doubt I will be needing some help to get my diabetes to where it was x

    @ally1 it’s so good to see you back after some difficult and challenging times. Well done getting back to it - the first step back up the hill is hard when you’ve slipped but you are still on the right path, you know the direction to go in - the hard bit is to realise it and you have - do ask for any support you need. Thinking of you.

    Thank you.
    It is hard to get back on track and I accept that it's only me that can get back on the ladder. Have done it before so I can do it again x

    Hello @ally1,

    Just wanted to take the chance to also welcome you back to the forum. So, sorry to hear about your recent MS diagnosis -- you've definitely been given a plateful. Hugs.

    Here's rooting for you.
