    Hello, I'm 19, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in November last year. I was hoping to chat with someone around the same age as me that also has type 1 diabetes.
    Only just came across this forum, it didn't even occur to me that there would be anything like this, where I can talk to people going through the same thing as me.

    So if you fancy a chat, feel free to message me :)

    Beth.

    Hi Beth, I'm rose :) I'm 24 and was diagnosed with type 1 in November.

    This forum is amazing, it's helped me so much. I have learnt pretty much everything I know from here!

    How are you coping with it all?

    Pretty good actually, I live with a diabetic nurse so that's very helpful!

    This forum is very very helpful though, I've been learning loads of stuff and have only been on here a day!

    How are you getting on?
