where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Anyone know how to remove themselves from a network? This one was apparently changed to "Type2 Diabetes" so I don't belong here...

The network has always been and continues to be for peer support of ALL types of diabetes, NOT one exclusive to Type 1 pump users as your post can be read to suggest.

I don't see anything about him saying he was a pump user-not nice to assume**** I do agree that type 1 and type 2 should be separate, similar, yet not

****- Apparently it's not, since networks have been separately titled as "Type1" and "Type2" on here. Thanks**** you're correct, I am NOT a pump user! I am a female though(: haha.

I do have 'friends' who are and network with people who are Type2 but, it's not the same thing as Type1 (obviously). I don't like to be in groups and such that are directed solely towards...

A type of diabetes which is not what I have. Doesn't that make sense? I wouldn't be in a network for cervical cancer if I had breast cancer!

Type 1 and type 2 just aren't the same. Don't really belong together

True. Although I don't mind clumping them on Facebook, as in my 'friends'. It's nice to have them separated on social sites like they are in life. That's why I've joined FB groups directly for Type1

Yeah. I've seen some posts on here where type 2s are asking type 1s questions that really should be answers by an endo. Results could be deadly

HelpAround obviously wants to offer the same thing, no problem, I just want off this one now! Though I think the photo should be "T2D" now, as I feel the Blue Circle should be for the DOC as a whole!

Oh, yes! Way too many T2s will try to handle it on their own or with advice from fellow diabetics, other than going to an Endo. I wish some would understand a specialist is just as important...
