Where Are My Diabetic Friends?

I don't know about you, but I don't really have any diabetes friends. I do have friends who know a lot about it and ask me how I'm doing, but they don't know exactly what I'm going through. Don't get me wrong, I love my friends, but sometime it'd be like to have some extra support from friends with diabetes.

After 10 1/2 years, you'd think I'd have made a diabetic friend along the way. In college, I met one guy who had it, but he was such a cocky jerk that I didn't even attempt to get to know him. Last year, I met a girl who seemed cool at first, but it turned out she was a compulsive liar. So both friendships were doomed from the start.

I'll admit that I haven't exactly been searching for you out there. In the beginning I heard there was a local diabetes support group, but my doc told me they'd "disbanded" because people weren't coming.

Someday it'd be nice to have a great friend that I really click with who also knows what I'm going through. The kind where you just get each other without words. Until then, I'll try to be patient. I'd love to hear about where and how you've met your diabetic friends!
