    Hello, I'm not sure if this post is allowed, but I really want to get the word out about schemes to help us diabetics who are struggling.

    I have recently become involved in a Peer Support Scheme, set up by Diabetes UK. Have recently received training, and now looking to really promote this new support network. For the days when your sugar levels won't stay in range, or the days you think "why me", we're hoping the Peer Support Scheme will give people somewhere else to turn to. I myself, get frustrated when no one else seems to understand what I'm going through.

    If anyone ever wants to chat, or knows someone who is having a hard time with their diabetes, please feel free to message me, I can give you a separate email address if that's easier.

    Hi there,

    I hope you don'. Mind me asking but can you tell me about where you received this training from? It's something I'd really be interested in
