    Would be great to talk to people who also feel they are struggling. I've been diabetic for 5 years. And it's hitting me hard, trying my hardest to control my diet probably isn't the greatest. I'm 17 and Personally it as had a big impact on my life physically and certainly emotionally. My annual eye screening showed my eyes have started to changed so I have quit smoking. Any advice or someone to talk to would be very much appreciated.

    Hey! I've been diabetic for 3 years and last year has been hard. I've had trouble accepting the fact that I have diabetes and I want to hide it and not tell people about it and not inject insulin in public places etc and I'm still struggling with this a lot. And I haven't talked about it with anyone so if you need someone to talk to I'm here!
