    Hello i'm Isaac type1 diabetic since i was 13 years old, i am 25 going on 26 now and i have yet to find a good place to chat with other diabetics, so i'm trying to start a social group for diabetics where we can actually talk! i know if i had some sort of support like this my life could have been a bit easier since none of my friends or family really took the time to understand my diabetes i've been at it alone. its a cam chat site where i hope people will go and make friends with other diabetics! hope to see you there

    well, cool. the doctors at needstreet recently diagnosed me with type 1. It would be helping if we have a social group to talk about common issues. thanks a lot.

    Thats a great idea! When I was diagnosed 45 years ago I had noone who could relate to me! I rebelled for many years only to hurt myself!!! I suggest you talk to people who also have it so you can learn and wont feel alone.

    Here is another place to talk! Exactly what you are describing..

    Througout my childhood, my parents were very diligent in making sure that they knew everything they could about T1D; they researched, fundraised, and constantly developed relationships with other T1D affected people. Having friends on the same journey as me was one of the most beneficial things things to my health, and made me more able to cope with T1D. I decided I want to give back and help connect others who get what we're going through. I am now a moderator for a new online community called Curatio. They automatically matched me with people living with the same condition.
    I hope to see some of you there!
