Many things are stronger when they are connected, and people are no exception. As humans, we gravitate towards those who share similar interests or experiences, and thrive when we can share with one another. Living with Type 1 Diabetes is a unique ‘experience’, and meeting with others who also live with this condition can help ease some of those daily struggles.
In an informal, unstructured environment, you can meet people just like you, who understand the dizzying world of glucose levels, insulin injections, finger pricks, carb counting, and everything else that comes along with managing Type 1 Diabetes. Our Diabetes Educator Annette will be available for discussion and questions, but essentially this is a chance for you to meet others in a casual catch-up, away from a clinical/medical setting.
The support group will be held on Wednesday 14th August at 6.30pm at Souths Merewether (the big red club just down the road from our Centre). This event is open to all people with Type 1 Diabetes, both Hunter Diabetes Centre patients and members of the public. This also includes family, friends and partners – your support network is just as important. Come along for a drink, a meal, or just to chat – but we need to book tables, so an RSVP by Monday 12th August would be most appreciated.
