Hello everyone! My name is Danielle and I am 15 years old and have almost had diabetes for 10 years. If any of you ever want to chat send me a message and I will gladly chat with you! It's good to know I'm not alone in this :)

Hello! I am new to this group and to diabetes… I'm 18 years old and was only diagnosed with type 1 a little over a month ago. I don't know anyone else with type 1 so I'd love to talk to and make friends with people on this site who are in a similar situation!

Comment by Andrew on June 19, 2014 at 10:43am

Hey there. I am a 13 year old who has been diagnosed since I was 11. I don't want to be doing this, but my Mom is making me.

Hi Katelyn and welcome :)
I would like to remind everyone that tomorrow, tuesday June 17, at 2PM PST, we are having a live chat for teens and young adults only, here, in the chatroom.
The goal really is to get all of us teens and young adults together for once, as we are not a lot and don't see eachother often.
Hope this is gonna be a fun chat with you guys!

Hi everyone! I am new to this group and would love to find some people to talk to:) I'm 18 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a little over six years ago. I currently live in Florida and will be starting my second year of college this fall. I hope to make some friends on this site and just meet some other people who know what it's like to deal with diabetes.

Hey I'm 18 and I've been diabetic for nearly 13 years. I'm new to this site and I never really talked to anyone my age who also has diabetes! I am Italian and I study in the UK, I have had a pretty rough time in the past years with managing my diabetes (especially high BG), so if you have similar difficulties, don't hesitate to contact me :)
