    I am 16 and have been diabetic since I was 6, I don't really know anybody who has diabetes and would love to talk to new people :)

    Hi Molly,

    Welcome to the forum, and my commiserations - I too was six when I was diagnosed (now I'm just old and grey).

    Best wishes with your diabetes and with finding friends online - just remember to stay safe and do not give out personal information (e.g. address, etc.,) because there are people online who are not who/what they say they are.

    Conrad

    Hi, thank you. My diabetes is okay now but I guess that's just because I have learned to live with it. It's now just a part of my life now
