I'm going through a lot of this alone so I'm looking for people who understand and can share coping and knowledge. I'm 48 with grown kids. I'm educated, very raw and open, often blunt, and don't want to feel so isolated. I hope you don't feel solo. I'm here to journey through things with people like myself. Hopefully.

      I'm also 48. Feeling new to life honestly having left a religion that was very structured. Finding my voice. But traveling alone.

      You sound exactly like my mom 😂 she found her people eventually, you'll find yours too 💕

      Every coin has two sides. It helped me a lot to not think of being diagnosed and my new life as a negative, but as a good excuse to take care of myself. Best wishes.

      I have zero friends so I know what it's like to feel constantly isolated. Be strong❤️💕

      I'm with you. Only one in my family dealing with it.

      Hello. I think we may have a lot in common. I am 44. No kids. I am rather blunt. Well educated. I also feel isolated. I am newly diagnosed and still reeling. Would very much like to connect with others on a similar path.

        @Titania I'm newly diagnosed with the T2D And on top of my other issues, it's got my anxiety on overdrive. Then depression because I can't control the anxiety even taking meds. I'm open for creating friendships. Support is so necessary.
