Yes, I agree that this is a good place to find support, encouragement a some really good stories about what success [and other stuff too] people have gad living with diabetes. We share based on our own experience and not as medical care professionals.
If possible, I suggest that if possible you find and attend a “TypeOne Nation Summit”. You can find the Summits by using the “Events” tab at the top of the page - I did and was rewarded by meeting other T1 people close by. The events are free for us because of generous sponsors.
