    Hi,
    I'm 11 and have been feeling really alone for the last few weeks.I'm a type 1 diabetic desperate to meet other kids around my age. I think it would help me because I've never known someone my age with T1 Diabetes. :!:. My last HBA1C was 8.5 and I think if I knew some of you it might boost my confidence to get it into the 7ns. I can't waint to meet anyone!!!
    Thanks
    xxx

    Hey! I've literally turned 12 (22nd Jan) and I got diagnosed on the 12th Jan. I'm happy to chat with anyone really, I'm kinda new to stuff but I know a lot. If you wanna chat, I'd love to get to know someone!!!! Do you do injections, have a pump? How many times do you check your blood? I'm very curious aswell and I know only a couple of people that have Type 1. X

    Hi girls/boys. My son Alfie was diagnosed on Saturday and has been very poorly. We know no one with diabetes type 1 and i'm certain Alfie would love some new friends who know what he has coming to him :) He is 11 and lives in Nottinghamshire x

    Hi Bethany,
    Cool I live in Gloucester, at least 3 hours away. I'm glad that we can chat. So, what do you want to talk about. Maybe advice, or just talk about diabetes in general!
