Looking for Diabetes Support

Hi there,
I think it is so great that you have managed to turn your diagnosis into a magazine!  I think it is really inspiring!
Im hoping you can help me.  I am looking for an online forum to support me and my diabetes.  I am 29 and was diagnosed at 5.
I want to get on to a pump because I think it is the next best thing for me, however, I am stuck between a finding a good clinic in Joburg, Medtronic and finding a Medical Insurance company that will cover me.
I just need someone I can speak to and help me clear my questions as I do not understand all this legal terminology.
In Zambia we have no support network (in fact I am the head of one but no one comes to it) – and I just need someone to talk to. The psychological aspect can have such a toll.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
Kaajal
