Share Your Thoughts!
I am writing an article for JDRF on my favorite diabetes subject: meeting others with diabetes.
Although I know a lot about this topic, I can’t exactly write it all from my point-of-view.
If you’re interested, please email or comment with 3-5 sentences about how you have met people with diabetes (support group, Walks, freakishly random encounters at houseparties…) and why you think meeting people in real life is important as opposed to just on the Internet. Obviously meeting people is important no matter how you do it, but the article is about the real life relationships, so please try to stay focused on those experiences.
Please send them to me as soon as possible, I’d like to have a collection by tomorrow night.
If you have any questions, you know how to reach me!
Wednesday morning edit: If any of you have stories about actually becoming friends with either people with diabetes, I would love to hear about that as well. I need a mix of both chance encounters and real relationships, so please keep that in mind. Thanks!
