    Hello everyone.

    How are y'all doing?

    I'm sorry that I have not been on for a long time. I have been very busy and just haven't had any time to come on.

    Things have been really progressing well. I am still off the alcoholic beverages and I'm managing my diabetes really well now. I have learnt so much over that last couple of months.

    I put on a whopping twelve kilograms over a time of 3 weeks which took me to 79kg. I think that one of the biggest reasons that I put on so much weight other than Diabetes it's self was because I was taking Mirtazapine for a while. I'm not sure if Mirtazapine is directly responsible for the weight gain but it does give you a ravenous appetite. Although, saying that, I don't think I ate significantly more than I normally would have done when I wasn't taking the Mirtazapine. Since I was diagnosed with diabetes I have been feeling better and better and because of that I have recently managed to come off Mirtazapine completely. I have now got back down to 67k. :D

    I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go but I just thought that I'd call in, say hello and give you a small update.

    Time is tight so I cant stay on.

    I really hope that all of you are doing as good as I am feeling and are enjoying life. So for now I wish you all my very best. Take care and have fun. Byeeeee :)

    Andrew :)

    Hey @everway9 good to hear you are doing well since diagnosis. It is all a lot to learn bit by bit, day by day as you get accustomed to your own diabetes. I read a post on here where someone likened it to a marathon not a sprint and that helped make a bit of sense to me shortly after diagnosis.

    Snap!

    Hey. :)

    Yup I live near Carlisle. 5 miles south of Wigton at a place called Greenfoot which is just up the lane from Boltongate. If you search for post code CA7 1DF on Google maps and use street view my house is the one with the little pink car outside. :)

    We should have our own section of the forum. :) The Cumbrian's Room. :D

    Nothing wrong with a (huge guess) Suzuki Alto?

    Any road if we had our own section could we use some of the local dialect?
