    Dear All,
    I have started a new yahoogroup for parents of type 1 diabetics in the DFW area. This group is NOT to take the place of this wonderful website. It is a group for families to find support in their immediate area. We had our last get together this last Sunday. The kids had a blast getting to know each other and the parents enjoyed each others company as well. If anyone in the DFW area is interested please contact me at aczettle@msn.com and I will give you more information about how to join this yahoogroup.
    Best Wishes,
    Alison ( Andrew 6years, dx: March 2010)

    Did you go to the Friends for Life conference in Florida this past July? We went and had a blast. It would be fun to get the members from the group together at the conference next July! So glad you joined:)

    There was a group in central Texas that was started a few years back -- it never took off. Good luck on this one!

    I find that diabetes issues are the same no matter what part of the country you are in.

    Yes, it is fun to have a personal connection. I know of almost no one with diabetes and neither does my son. We see a group during a summer camp, but that is it.

    We already have 40 members and we just started the group a little over a month ago. It is wonderful to see people connect and for the children to feel like they belong!

    I've run into shockingly few T1's here as well. One lives next door! The rest I have run into at the rec center.. and they've all been younger kids. I have met one T2 pumper though :)

    First time on this site...

    curious about the yahoo group.

    I am the father of a 15-yr old T1 (Dx'd July '10), and Celiac (Nov '10)

    N. DFW area.

    Would appreciate any info and links folks have for nervous moms. As if shots, lancets, glucogon kits and carb counting aren't enough...she's now learned 80% of what we could count....can't be counted anymore...grrrr.

    We had another fabulous get together with over 25 people! We had a wonderful time meeting and learning from other families who understand what we go thru everyday. It was also so nice to see the kids feel so relaxed and connected with each other:) In November it was in Frisco at Dave and Busters and this time the get together was at a member's home in Denton, with carb counts/factors and a scale at the end of the buffet table! Ages in the group range from 2 yrs-15yrs.

    Our first get together of 2011 was great fun! The kids had a blast at Skatetown in Grapevine. Followed by more fun at Chic Fil A. Looking forward to the next one.
