It's A.... Website?
Heather and I are pleased to announce the birth of our very own Website!
Diabetes Teen Talk was born January 9, 2005 at 12:00 EST.
You can find out more by visiting Diabetes Teen Talk.
In all seriousness, folks, Diabetes Teen Talk, an online community for teens with diabetes, has just been launched. I'm very proud of this website, and I'm excited to hear what you think of it. The goal of this website is to educate and to inspire teens and to foster friendship among these D-Teens, who in some cases know no one else with diabetes. We have a message board and a chatroom (which we share with Diabetes Talkfest), a long list of articles and interviews with adults and celebrities with diabetes, diabetes experts and D-Teens.
Although it is geared towards teens, parents and adults should feel free to peruse the website. You won't find anything on how to raise your teen, but it might give you an insight into how they think and what they are going through.
I never had this kind of resource when I was growing up, but of course, I started the original Teen Talk over at Diabetes Portal when I was 17, so I suppose I created my own method for coping with being a D-Teen.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the website and please let me know what you think. I'm always open to ideas and suggestions for how to improve my work.
