I might have mentioned about 100 times that I’m the community guide for T2D Healthline – a digital community that supports people with type 2 diabetes.

I love this job because it allows me to do a few things I love.

I get to connect to people with diabetes who are learning how to manage properly.

I get to encourage others who need a listening ear, or someone to lean on.

And, I get to facilitate a safe space for people with type 2 diabetes.

The online world isn’t always that kind to people with type 2.

But, when people can come together and share similar experiences, you find a community and kindness that you probably couldn’t imagine.

Peer support has always been important to me – it was the first thing I looked for when I was diagnosed.

I can’t imagine where I’d be now, if someone else my age with T2D said “Hey! I’m here with you.” It would have changed everything.

Now with an app like T2D Healthline, I get the benefits of connecting with others with type 2 diabetes, and being the person that says “I’m here with you!”

What is a peer support community?

Peer support communities are places where you can meet others going through the same things as you.

There are peer support communities for lots of different health concerns. People with diabetes have some of the strongest support systems online.

Why should I join a peer support community?

Many of us don’t want to feel alone. We want support from people who get us, and are living similar lives.

It makes a difference to feel heard, and be supported by someone who understands your day-to-day life.

Peer support communities can help you create a special bond with people who are just like you.

How do I join the T2D Healthline app?

It’s easy. Click here to download the app (it’s available on iOS and Android). From there, you can create a profile and start connecting with others.
