We're so happy that you're finally here!
Welcome home OccultFan!
You say "She hates it when people confuse the two"...you mean Type 1 and Type 2? Let that be an opportunity to educate :)
Actually....there is MORE than just Type 1 and Type 2, but that's ok....you'll find out more, now that you're here!
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....
"Young Adults with Diabetes". Also, look into "Type 3 Diabetes" (for people with loved ones who have diabetes).
