Three things about me and which I think you already know… but just in case you don’t:
- I’m all about us (every single person living with diabetes and no matter the type,) working together as a diabetes team! I live with t1 diabetes - I always support, continually learn from, and actively fight for my LADA Diabetes and T2 diabetes brothers and sisters - ALWAYS.
- I’m all about people with diabetes having as many options and choices as possible when it comes to living with diabetes - in the form of treatment plans (medications, meal plans, diabetes robot parts,) being an active participant in your diabetes - using your diabetes voice and partnering with your Doctor re your diabetes treatment, and participating in the DOC (diabetes online community,) including digital diabetes spaces that fit the individual PWD (person with diabetes,) needs.
- Diabetes isn’t one size fits all, what works for one person, may not work for another. Diabetes choices and options are key components that make living our diabetes lives easier!
Which is why when Healthline reached out to me and wanted to share their new app - appropriately named, T2D Healthline - I agreed to listen to what they had to say.
And you know what? I liked what I heard. It’s good stuff.
So I agreed to partner with T2D Healthline to help spread the word (and host some app chats,) about their new free app, which is why I’m sharing this information with you.
What you do with the info is up to you!
In a nutshell, the T2D Healthline app provides people living with type 2 diabetes another alternative in the form of community, a place to connect and share with others who “get it.”
The free app allows you to engage in realtime chats, have access to a virtual library of Healthline articles, icebreaker questions to help you… well, break the ice with other community members.
The app also provides you with a daily “match” option.
As in being matched up with a new t2 buddy, daily (and only if you want, the choice is up to you - no pressure,) while providing a private/safe space to connect with others looking to receive (and provide,) support re: living with type 2 diabetes.
And some other cool stuff~
Bottom line: We need to keep and stay connected - especially right now - to say it’s been a strange spring is an understatement!
Keeping connected with others helps us to feel less isolated, more empowered, and better equipped to handle our lives… and our lives with diabetes.
