Hi friends (:
I am a 23 year old who is desperately looking for a community to support me in my journey with Type 1 diabetes.
I have a few local friends who also have the betes, but they aren't super in to chatting about it which isn't helpful for me.
Looking for some advice, support, and just people to talk to who get it for once.

Hi,
I'm Lindsay... Just turned 24 and my 10 year is on Feb 28! I live in NYC and in the past year have had the most incredible revelation. Embracing my disease and using it to fuel my fire instead of wear me down has taught me that diabetes is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me... 

The hardest part of the whole thing was always feeling so alone, like a freak of nature, and NEVER EVER NORMAL... But now after reading Dealing with Diabetes Burn Out by Ginger Vieira and Think Like a Pancreas by the founders of Integrated Diabetes Services, I have realized I'm not alone...I am just a girl becoming a woman with diabetes. And I think that is cool.

Feel free to email me anytime...I love to talk diabetes so let me know:)
