This is a social group for adults with Type 1 Diabetes (Insulin Dependent) living in the greater Austin / Central Texas area. We are a fairly small percentage of the population and it would be nice to share some camaraderie with others who understand how emotionally draining this disease can be... It is fun, therapeutic and enlightening to meet up and make some new friends that have some similar daily challenges. You should join if you live in the Austin/San Marcos/Round Rock area, are living with Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Adult Onset Diabetes or Type 2 Insulin Dependent and take injections or are pumping, are over the age of 18 and want to make new friends. We may eventually engage in some activism for our cause, but for now I would like to keep it social. I am very open to any help or ideas you may have for this Meetup group. I started the group because I saw a need for it and that there are others who are interested. Also, it is always ok to bring a friend, partner or family member with you to a meeting! The ones who spend the most time with us need support too!

We're 158 Type 1's.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
