I have unsuccessfully tried to establish a get together in San Diego CA on 2 occasions. I have personally been a type 1 for 28 years and during that time I have only met 2 other type 1s that I could talk with and know they understand.
So I got to thinking maybe people don't want to talk face to face about it, I remember running into a women at the Corvette Diner in Hillcrest, she had an insulin pump and I tried to make small talk and told her I was also a type 1 she did not seem interested in talking either.
I am a fairly open person about what I have and have no problem talking about it, maybe I am the odd ball.
So the question is, would you rather keep it to yourself or are you willing to talk about it when asked face to face
