Pamela, have you joined this Group yet?

how old is your daughter? If she is 13, she can join here herself. I am part of the team that monitors activity here, and we take the safety of our youngest members here very seriously.

Hi Pamela - My daughter, Maxine is also 9. She is approaching her 2 year anniversary of dx. She is really pretty cool with her diabetes, but she does get bummed that she is the only kid at her school with it. We go to family diabetes camp here in Southern California for a weekend every summer. Check ADA to find a camp near you. It means so much to the kids. We did shots for the first year and a half. Now on pump and its working fine. You know you always have our support. -Tracy

Hi Pamela,
Welcome to TuDiabetes! My oldest daughter Erin turns 10 at the end of February and my youngest daughter Eva turns 8 at the beginning of March. It sounds like your daughter falls somewhere between. Erin's email address is fairyprincessesrule at gmail.com. She loves meeting new friends and has a very active correspondence!

Both of my girls have had T1 for about 5 years now. Erin corresponds with her diabetes camp pals. I would highly encourage you to find a local diabetes camp for your daughter to attend this summer. For my girls, it is the one week out of the year that they are "normal". Everyone involved in the camp, top to bottom, has T1 and understands the milestones involved.

I hope you find the community as helpful and supportive as I have!

Hi Pamela, My name is Charis. I have a 9 y/o T1 (dx'd oct 2010), she will be 10 the end of may. Her name is Genevieve, but her friends call her Evie (pronounced E.V.), and i have a 7 y/o T1 (dx'd nov 2009), she will be 8 on sunday, her name is Lilly. I am sure that they would love to be email pals with your daughter!
This is their email address.

My girls love to meet and chat with other T1 kids, and you are right that it makes things much easier when they have someone to talk with!
i also like chatting with other moms, as we have a different role to play in all this, and we alo need support! Do you have any other children? we also have 2 non D kids (praying that it stay that way!)
Hope you have a blessed day.
Charis Jo
