|Challenge Course at Slipstream 2011|
This year I am going up a day earlier because I was asked to be a Connected in Motion ambassador. I am really excited about this because I love being involved in the diabetes community. I love being able to reach out to other type 1's and their families and most of all planning fun events.
Recently I reached out to my own community at the University of Western Ontario [the school in which I attend] I wanted to start building connections between the type 1s at school that may or may not have met one another before. I know how easy it can be to feel alone in your disease and I don't want anyone to have to go through that.
The first plan is to go to a restaurant - just to get to know each other. So far 12 are attending and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I am so excited to connect with all the type 1s at Western! I think that is one of the most important aspects of diabetes is community.
When you have these stable networks you will never have to feel alone in your disease!
