Are there any groups for parents of Type 1 kids to meet and share ideas/support? I've checked with the jdrf and cda, but come up with nothing. My 6 year old son was diagnosed just a few months ago and would love the support of some kind of group. I think only other parents of Type 1 kids could really understand. Toronto is a major city, I'm surprised, does nothing exist like this? I thought the hospital social worker at Sick Kids might have something running, but nothing. At my hospital visits with my son, I feel like I can totally spot those other parents of newly diagnosed kids because they look as shocked and upset as I have been. But no support for the emotional needs of the parents or kids has ever been offered. Somehow this just feels so behind-the-times. What do they do in other major cities, I wonder.
