Hi ,
I'm organizing a Support Group/meetup for people with type one diabetes in the Tucson area, Jan 17, 7-9pm. I'd love it if you'd come, as 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!

Welcome, lady!! I'm so glad you signed up! There are a ton of fantastic people on here who have all been there and know what it is like! I've made some really wonderful connections through here, and everyone's kind words and encouragement have constantly been a source of strength for me- I hope you can feel the love ;)

I felt the same way when I joined. Like Doris, I'd had it a long time. that was three years ago, and I really feel like TuDiabetes is family, a safety net, a place to go when things are crazy, where everyone understands. our founder Manny is the most amazing guy.

I had a similar reaction when I joined. Until I found this place, I never knew another person who acquired Type 1 as an adult. Here I found a bunch of other LADAs. Everyone reaching out to me immediately made me feel comfortable to post and get active right away. You'll find this bunch is really special. It is remarkable that a social network can help so much but it really can. We are glad to have you here!!!

Post away!!! I came here about 35 years after being diagnosed with Type 1 and I loved it here! We all get it. We've all been there. Don't worry we're all here for you!
