    Hi I've had T1 since I was 7 and I'm now 16! I was diagnosed when I was living in Spain so it was difficult with the healthcare but I'm now on an Insulin pump which I've had for 3 years now:)

    If anyone wants to chat about having T1 diabetes with someone who has had it for a long time or wants to know what it's like to have pump... Feel free to message me! I'm not a pro or anything but I know what it feels like to feel isolated and have no one to talk to, especially when your first diagnosed :)

    I'm 15, and was diagnosed when I was 3, and I ended up spending Halloween in the hospital. I know I'm a bit late, but I'd love to talk to some diabetics my age.

    I'm 15 as well. I've had diabetes almost as long as I can remember. It sucks. If you want to talk or ask about anything, feel free to ask, even if you think it's stupid.
