For those of you feeling alone and just want to have an awesome weekend with other young adults who have diabetes you should check out Dtreat. I was asking my nurse about some support groups but we couldn’t find any in my city and I was feeling really alone until I found these camps. They’re put on by the Diabetes Education and Camping Association. They are designed for 18-25 year old type 1 diabetics and the issues that we are dealing with. I am so excited to no longer be the only diabetic in the room!! I’m signed up for Dtreat Tampa but they have them in lots of other places all over the US and Canada. They hold them on university campuses and for 3 days of activities, accommodations, meals and everything else it’s only 50$! Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
I think it’s such an excellent idea since there really aren’t any camps for our age group. It’s mostly just for the little kids but we need emotional group support too.
Anyways, I really want to spread the word so that other diabetics get to enjoy this experience too.
