Need a buddy?

If anyone needs someone to talk to about T1 problems, either newly diagnosed or not

Or message me on here. Either one is fine. :slight_smile:

I think it’s great you want to help people! thanks!

I am looking for a diabuddy! I would love to have one that lives near me, but having anyone at this point would be great! I am a 36 year old female, from Lancaster PA. Hospitalized with DKA on 7/31/18. Didn’t know I was diabetic. Spent 2 days in ICU and a total of 5 days in the hospital. It wasn’t until my 1st endocrinologist appointment that I was told I am a T1D. They needed further testing. Was on pens for a little. But that same day my doc put in an order for a 670g pump. It was approved on 8/22/18. And got it the following Monday. Been on the pump for 5 weeks tomorrow. 3 weeks with CGM and today is 3 days in Auto Mode. Just need someone who knows how I am feeling and totally understands me. My family are very supportive. But they just don’t get it. Thanks!!

Hi Helen :slight_smile: Although I’m not close to you, I too am looking for a diabuddy. Would you like to exchange contact information?

maybe instead of emailing me, message me. :slight_smile:

thx for the replies though.

Sure that would be great! Thanks!

Hi there! I tried to send you a personal message, but it says I wasn’t allowed to. I wanted to exchange info. Maybe try sending me a message. Thanks!

Hi Helen,

I’m not sure you’re trying to connect with me. If you are, this email address is good. I have nothing else.
