This is going to sound like an odd question, but is there anyone out there that lives in the lower mainland of BC (New west, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Vancouver, Surrey)with type 1 diabetes that would like to get in contact with me? I am a 32 year old married woman who has had type 1 for almost 24 years and I have never known of another T1 before. I was at the hospital for a routine check-up the other day and started talking to another girl about my age who also had type 1. Even though we only talked for a couple mins, it made me realize how much I would love to be friends with someone that is going through the same thing as me. I love my husband, friends, and family but it is hard for them to relate to me sometimes and I don't think they'll ever really "get it". I feel like I'm writing a profile for a dating site, lol!
Anyways, if anybody is out there and would like to connect, please let me know!
