This is a group for those who have been sharing their stories and helping me with research with the film about type 1 diabetic

Okay, so I have set up this group to organise the film better. Here is an update.
I am currently writing the script, with another filmmaker called Sam. We have decided on the following characters:-
-The Diabetic Nurse (Male, s he isn't stereotypical)
-A Managing Director (Has a 7 year old girl)
-A Cleaner (has two teenage children, one with Aspergers)
-An elderly woman - catholic. (Has grandaughter who is diabetic)
-Student, Jewish (friends with the wrong kind of people)
-An American (Likes having free health care, but finds england behind on technology. On the pump)
-New Diabetic, New mum (Very quiet and nervous)
-A young girl whose dad is type 2.

There will be the family members, and other people too. But this gives you an idea of where we are. We have some storylines, but I don't want to give anything away.
