Being diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic is frightening. Once you are done at the doctors office or hospital you are left at home, with a ton of questions and very little answers. Sure you can search online, but interaction and support from actual people, those dealing with the same things you are, is what really helps. Thanks to the Diabetes Hands Foundation support like that exists 24/7. While there may be other resources, I have yet to find more comfort, welcome and information than I have from them.
