Hello Any Parents in the Columbia, SC Area?


(Saphronia) #1

Hello Everyone,
My son was diagnosed a little over a year ago with T1D and he is turning 13 this year. I thought it would be a good idea for him to interact with other children with the same condition. He is very embarrassed about it and will not attend community functions for T1D. He is very outgoing and loves basketball, but have been in a “shell” lately about being a diabetic; he has days like this every blue moon. Thanks for your help and hope to hear from someone soon. Take Care and have a blessed day!

@saphroniao, hi Saphronia

you may want to try to find a JDRF location near you. They have fundraisers and at these events you will meet many new Parents and children with diabetes. It could be a good opportunity to network and make friends and find support.

You can go to the JDRF main website or click this link http://www.jdrf.org/chapter-select/
