As humans, we’re hardwired for connection. Belonging to a community makes us feel safe and helps us thrive.
But so often, living with type 2 diabetes (T2D) can make you feel physically and emotionally isolated. Not only can it be hard to do things you loved before your diagnosis, but it can also feel like no one understands what it’s like.
Our mission is to cultivate a space powered by the T2D community and empowered by each other. From one-to-one chats to conversation forums, we make connecting easy. This is a safe place to find and receive advice, to seek and offer support, and to discover the authentic stories of members, just like you.
Bezzy T2D is a free online platform bringing new meaning to the word “community.”
Our aim is to create an experience where:
- everyone feels seen, valued, and understood
- everyone’s story matters
- shared vulnerability is the name of the game
Bezzy T2D is a place where you are more than your T2D. It’s a place where, finally, you belong.
HOW IT WORKS
Like all of your favorite social networks, we’ve designed an activity feed to connect you with other members living with multiple sclerosis. We pride ourselves on making Bezzy T2D a safe and secure space where you can join live discussions, connect one-to-one, and read the latest articles and personal stories.
Need to vent? Get advice? Share what’s on your mind? Hop into a daily live chat to join the conversation. They’re often led by our amazing Community Guide, but you can also expect to chat with other advocates and experts, too.
From treatments to symptoms to daily living, T2D changes everything. Whatever you're feeling on any given day, there's a forum where you can connect and share directly with others.
Let us connect you with a new member from our community every day. We’ll recommend members to you based on your treatment plan, lifestyle interests, and needs. Browse member profiles and request to connect with anyone from our community with members listed as “Online Now.”
Discover Articles and Stories
We believe that shared experiences empower the kind of belonging that can help people not only survive—but thrive—with T2D. Our stories offer perspectives and tips from people who know what it’s like.
