    hi everyone! i'm not very good at intros so i'll keep this short & sweet! - i've been a type 1 diabetic since i was 10 (now 19) and thought it was about time i joined a forum dedicated to it to just to get talking to some people who have it as i'm the only person i know with type 1, and in all honestly the diabetes nurses at the hospital aren't too great so it'd be nice to get some advice now and again too! and this seemed the friendliest forum so here i am!
    looking forward to talking to you all :)

    Hi Zoeee and welcome to the forum. :) You are right - this is the friendliest forum :D I can't talk to you about your experiences with Type 1 as I am a Type 2 but there are loads of Type ls on here who will come along and who will be very pleased to meet you.

    You mentioned advice - I know you have been diagnosed for a long time but here's the advice we hand out to new members - you probably know most of it but perhaps you will find some of it interesting and perhaps a little bit different from what people have been telling you up to now. This is how we recommend looking after your diabetes and what we believe in on this forum.
