When we are scared, sad, angry, frustrated and need a place... this community is here.
Thank you @CatLady06 for bringing us back to the core and heart of why we are all here....Our TuDiabetes mission and the values that we hold close. One certainty we do have is this space, together we are stronger and can get through anything. So many hugs to everyone.
Our mission is to connect people touched by diabetes (people who live with type 1, type 2 and other types of diabetes, as well as their loved ones).
We foster a positive environment where our members support and help each other. This doesn't mean it's all roses all the time, but it means that, overall, we strive for maintaining an encouraging and supportive space for all people touched by diabetes. Malicious gossip and trolling for dates are not tolerated on TuDiabetes.
Diversity and Respect
We value diverse points of view. All people touched by diabetes are welcome. You may find opinions and positions that are not similar to yours and it's OK to disagree. It's just not OK to do so in a disrespectful manner. If you are unsure about whether something may be disrespectful to others, try to put yourself in the shoes of the other person and consider how you would feel if you were on the receiving end of the comments/contribution you are making.
A note about the different types of diabetes: We believe that no one with diabetes is responsible for having this condition, and we do not support debates about "which type is worse" or comments which place blame on anyone for their condition. The different types of diabetes have more similarities than differences, and within this community we focus on our commonalities and the ways in which we can all support one another as a unified group.
