'Being recently diagnosed with Diabetes I was feeling nobody was helping me. Came to these meetings and have learned to live a bit better with the condition. Don’t feel like I’m a burden to my family anymore. Taking a lot of information from the sessions and Damian and Charlotte have been a godsend. Thanks Attendee of a recent Living Well with Diabetes course
