Type 1 Diabetes
If you don't already know someone with Type 1 Diabetes that you can not only ask advice from, but also just chat about the ups and downs of diabetes with, I would highly recommend that you look into whether or not there are any support groups in your area. Having someone to talk to really helped me get through those first few months. I was diagnosed late in life (at 37!), so, it was quite the shock to the system. If you haven't yet heard of it, I would also recommend the podcast, pancreas pals. I am still working through all of the seasons, and I have learned A LOT of valuable tips from them!
