    Hi, thanks for stopping by :)

    I'm 16 year old Rachael from Manchester. I've had type one diabetes for ten years now but I've never really met anyone my age with it. I mean, my Uncle is diabetic as is my cousin, but they're like forty odd and eleven, so it's a little hard to talk to them.

    So basically, I'm looking for anyone who's up for a good chat :)

    Hi @INeedSugarNow! and welcome to the forum! I'm afraid I'm geriatric, but there are a number of young people on the forum. You should check out @Dana_Heath's threads and blog, she is 16 too.

    Hey, I'm Matt, 29 from Surrey, had diabetes since I was 11. I'm pretty bad with it tbh! Never really talk to anyone with it, feel free to message and chat.
