Hey everyone! My name is Carly and I am 18 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 7 years ago. I've never had the opportunity to really connect with other diabetics my age. I would love to be able to talk to someone for advice and vise vera in struggling with this disease. Message me if you want to talk! :)

Hi everyone, my name is Katelyn. I'm 18 years old and was diagnosed about 5 1/2 years ago. I don't know many people with diabetes and would love to talk with some of you. Please feel free to send me a message:)

Hi everyone, my name is Cassie. I just got back into this site and am hoping it will help with some of the stress of diabetes. I am T1 and have been for 5 years now. I used to be on a pump but am back to insulin shots...I'm excited to be here and meet people like myself (:

Hey! I'm 27 (almost 28 eek!) and have been a type 1 for 11 years in June! Glad I can finally find a place to learn and vent to people that know what I'm going through! :-)

Turning 18 on Saturday so hopefully I'll be able to stay in this group until then!! ;) I'm Julianne, I've had diabetes since I was 14 months old and I've finally realized I want to meet some people out there who are like me! I'm especially nervous as I have no idea how I'm going to handle diabetes in my adult life so any advice would be great! Can't wait to hear from you all!
