    I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over a year and a half ago I was just entering DKA. Im 13 and just stared my GCSE’s in year 9. I’m the only one with diabetes in my family it’s hard for them as it is me but it’s harder to keep explaining what I need to do when I need to do it or for them to understand. I have come along way since last year but I still struggle mentally with know my life will never be the same. I feel different in my self. I’m also the only one with diabetes in my friendship group and would like some friends who really understand what it’s like to like with diabetes.

    I'm forty, so not who are looking for, but it sounds like you're being really strong and doing a good job! Keep it up and try to explain to your parents and friends what you really need from them to support you, and someone around your age will probably come along shortly. All the best to you and and your family!
