I'm a Texan, but I am moving to philly in may. I'm a type1/LADA and I am a pumper. I would love to have a diabetes meet up in philly that would serve several purposes:
1. meet new friends, get support.
2. social get togethers with like minded diabetics.
This could mean once in a while meeting at a restuarant or the park in philly or some such. I am totally open to suggestions.
I also fantasize about: getting a group of diabetics together to do a walk for the cure type thing or some sort of mild running/walking activity. the fantasy continues wherein we meet up everyweekend at the park and run/walk for a few miles, stay in shape and socialize.
Other less physical options I am up for: diabetic book club- books do not have to be about diabetes- or just monthly coffee meetups.
I've benefited so much from this site, just knowing there are other people out there who are dealing with the same old SH*T as me, day in and day out. I think this is the next logical step.
