hi guys! My names Lindsay McKay and I’m a 20 year old college student with type 1 diabetes. I have a blog about my life with type 1 diabetes and life in college and hope to start a community over there! I touch on subjects like mental health, body image issues, and everything I’ve learned over the years with diabetes. It’d mean so much if you could check it out! we diabetics need to stay together <3 also, please share the link with others if you can!
@lindsayymckayy Hi Lindsay, and Welcome to the JDRF TypeOneNation Forum!
I’ve looked through your web page, and if “First Impression” means anything, you are off to a good start. I agree with your thought that there is benefit for us People With Diabetes [PWD] to have a safe place to share our experiences with diabetes and to learn from what other PWD have learned - both what has worked and from what has not been beneficial/
You may not know this, but the TypeOneNation Forum was begun around 2001 [when I originally joined] by a young lady, a recent college graduate, living with diabetes who had just moved to New York and was looking for other PWD to share experiences and “diabetes support”; now this TON Forum boasts over 25,000 members around the world.
Not knowing if you want “old-timers” with 60+++ years experience living with diabetes on your page, I’ve held back joining your club.
