If you are newly diagnosed
If you are just beginning your diabetes journey, I recommend you first read the Diabetes 101 posts on this website. If you read them in order, they will help you understand many things you need to know if you are going to live a happy and full life in spite of having diabetes.

If you have had diabetes for a while
If you already know the basics of what type 2 diabetes is, how it affects you and what you need to do to live in harmony with it (IS such a thing possible?) then browse through the topic categories you will find in the menu at the top of every page. Pick and choose the topics that interest you the most — the ones that can give you added information and inspiration as you live day to day with diabetes.
- Eating Healthy
- Living Better
- Medical Info
Verla believes in sharing and in passing along the things she has learned through trial and error. Because of this, she is in the process of creating helpful content to help others (and herself, too!) as each of us navigates through the day-to-day battle of living with diabetes.
All resources in her library are free for your own personal use — all you need to do is join Verla’s mailing list. She only asks that you don’t share these resources with other people. Instead, send your friends here where they can also join her mailing list and become a part of Verla’s diabetes-fighting “family.”
You will find the password to get into the Resource Library at the bottom of every email Verla sends to you. You can sign up in the sidebar on this website. (Note: If you are from the UK, you can request the password by sending an email to Verla at admin@LivingTodayWithType2Diabetes.com).
Wherever you are in your diabetes journey
I welcome you to my website and hope that together we can discover new and wonderful ways to combat this rotten disease and that we can not only share our journeys with each other, but also help each other along the way. That is my goal and my mission.
