With type 2 diabetes being so stigmatized, it can be difficult to find other people to connect with. The main reason why I started this show and my company is because I saw a gap in representation and community for those living with type 2 diabetes. Being diagnosed with it often comes with a lot of guilt and shame. It makes it hard for people to be open about their condition and share their experiences to others.
That's where the Beyond Type 2 community comes it. It is a safe space to share your stories, tips, or anything else you can think of with those that understand to a degree what you're going through. I sit down with Beyond Type 2's Senior Community Manager T'ara to talk more about how it came to be.
