Hi everyone,
Hi ,
I'm organizing a Support Group/meetup for people with type one diabetes in the Tucson area, Jan 17, 7-9pm. I've had type one diabetes since 1975, and I'm really wanting to connect in person with some other people with diabetes here in Tucson. Please let me know if you're interested, and if you are, let me know if there's a better time/date to meet. Thanks!

Hi all, I have been new here for about a month. I am living in north Nevada. I moved from California 10 years ago. I was dx'ed at 45 years old for T2, now 57 yo and on oral meds. Thanks for letting me in and will learn something from you all.

Hello everyone! I have returned to Tucson after 25 years. I have had T1 since 1989. Have returned to pump therapy and have added a cgm to the mix. I work at a hospital in the NW of Tucson and have three children. Hoping to stay up to date with what is happening in my neck of the woods.

Hi all! Just relocated from San Diego to Phoenix metro. My 8yo has T1D since Feb. 2006. Thanks for having me and looking forward to knowing you more!

I live in Henderson, NV and haven't seen many others from the Las Vegas area posting anything on here. I love the TuDiabetes site, it is so informative and up to the minute.

Welcome, Jackelope. I'm a long time T1 living in Chandler. I read a little in the other discussion about your neuropathy. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and getting back to feeling normal, or better than normal has been for you for a while I guess.
