Heya All! I'm Kristal- I'm 29 and have been a type 1 diabetic for 20 years this coming May. I'm currently on Lantus and Humalog. I'm from Southern California and would love to meet some new friends who are also type 1. It would be great to talk with others ho understand first hand what it's like to have this disease and all the crazy life experiences that come along with it!

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 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 (:
