So I've been thinking about this lately. We've never felt a tremendous need for our son to have friends who also have diabetes. We did send him to a diabetes summer camp early on. He had some fun but certainly didn't love it.
Perhaps it is because we've tried to make sure that his diabetes doesn't define who he is that we never saw an urgent need to help him find other T1 friends.
Yet as we've put this site together I have certainly seen the benefits of sharing and supporting. Maybe it would have been helpful to my son to have friends with diabetes.
But what do you all think about the issue?
