    Hi! My name is Aimee and I am type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed on 24th October 2012 (Hetalia day- Hetalia is an anime that I suggest you watch) Anywayyy I am 14 and I would like to make some diabetic friends as I only know a couple of people who are diabetic and I only see them a few times a year. Also there are no other Diabetics at my school so I don't have anyone who understands my diabetic worries/problems.
    :) :p

    Re: Diabetic Friends

    Yeah we can be friends! It is really hard when no one knows what you go through (I know people go through worse but...well..yeah)

    It really annoys me how people associate being fat with diabetes!
    ( I will try and PM you but I am not sure how, I am quite new to this websiteforumthingy)

    Hi I am 14 and I was diagnosed with type one diabetes April this year. I know what you mean I don't know anyone who has diabetes and so no one knows my struggles and how I feel.

    Hey my name is Brooke, and I am 15. I know how you feel! I was diagnosed about a year and a half ago, and I haven't meet anyone with type 1, I have people that are sympathetic, but it would be nice to have people that understand! I would love to be your friend!

    Re: Diabetic Friends

    Hi, I'm 18 and have been type 1 for 5 years. At the start I had no one to talk to and would hate to think that there are people going trough that now. So if anyone wants to talk, please don't hesitate to message me :)

    Hi I'm typing on behalf of my son (not sure of the etiquette yet) who was suddenly diagnosed last Wednesday night with Type 1.

    Owen had been feeling unwell for over a week, it was missed by the Doctor twice, including that morning. He feels quite despondent by not having anyone to speak to.

    Not sure how this works, if anyone could message him via me to start with. He's 14 (15 in Nov) devastatingly handsome & a huge Charlton fan, but don't let that put you off!
