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!

Hey all, I'm a T1 diabetic (12 years) living in the UAE. Thanks to everyone contributing to this group. Looking forward to sharing and discussing with all of you!

Hi guys! :)
I'm new to this site and I just wanted to introduce myself I guess! :) My name is Sam, I'm 24, I live in Melbourne and I've been a type 1 diabetic for almost 9 years. (wow that went fast!!? lol)
I'm really excited about the idea of connecting with others who get what we all go through on a daily basis. :)

Hi! I'm brand new to this website, although I've had type 1 diabetes for 17 years. I haven't really gotten to meet or talk with other peeps who have diabetes except a couple times. Anywho, here I am! :)
