We're so happy that you're finally here!
Welcome home...Bienvenue Alain, neighbour....I'm in Kitchener!! Diagnosed the day before Christmas....not easy! How is Aaron handling it all?
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in,
click on "all groups". You can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the
space provided.
Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well.
The resource boxes at the top of the home "Home" page, and
"About us" at the very bottom of your page and every page (the footer), offer you more information still.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for.
Here is a useful link to get you on your way:
There are also groups here for young people, and parents of children with diabetes, such as....
"Teenagers with Type 1", "Parents of Kids with type 1"

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of what you will learn is that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and vent to, if needed.
