We have a resource at our fingertips (literally), that is hugely valuable; that is each other.
Peer support is where I have learned the most about how to advocate for myself as a person with diabetes and the most about living well with type 1 diabetes. And thanks to the rapid pace of social media this has never been easier.
We have lots of online support groups and lots of face to face meetups of people with diabetes all over the country.
I have compiled a list of the ones that I know about.
If you attend a diabetes support group that I do not have on this list, please send me an email with who I should contact to get details of that group and I will include them also.
