There's nothing quite like the connection one feels when meeting another Type 1. No matter how supportive family and friends are, no one can understand the ups and downs of diabetes quite like another T1D.
I'm so thankful for the online diabetes community, and I'm also very thankful for the opportunity Beyond Type 1 has given me to be connected to another Type 1. I like it because it's not a virtual connection, it's a pen and paper connection, via snail mail.
You can sign up here to be matched with another T1D; then let the writing and stamp licking begin.
Beyond Type 1 also has an app that is just for T1Ds. Check it out!
