I understand that not many people live in my area but I was wondering if anyone knows about any Diabetes Support Groups in the Milwaukee, WI area. I googled this and only type 2 things come up.
I don’t exactly take care of my diabetes how I should and I believe meeting people in my area who knows the struggles and things I go through will help me greatly. Also my therapist thinks this will help me as well.
Thanks in advance if you can help at all!
Becca @BeccaG3, there are four JDRF Chapters located in and surrounding Milwaukee. Here is a link to the JDRF webpage JDRF - Diabetes - Type 1 Diabetes Research, Advocacy, and Support - click "Near You? at the top center and enter your zipcode.
Also check for events in the tab at the top of this page - I’ve found the people in Chapters are interested, interesting and supportive.
Hi Becca. I work in Milwaukee, and have been T1d for 44 years. I’m only in the Milwaukee area 3 days per week, but would be happy to meet up with you after work sometime! I also am not the most compliant with my diabetes care, but maybe we could be an inspiration to each other! If you’d like to chat more, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
