    Hey everyone! I'm 16 and a girl with t1d. I've been diagnosed 3 months now and doing really well! The only bad thing is that I don't have many friends with diabetes. I'd love a mix of both guys and girls. I have one or two girl friends but that's it. I'd love to talk to some guys to because I love football and think that could be a common interest :) thanks for reading and I hope we can chat soon

    Hi bluepatch9, I would like to have diabetes friends too. It is a bit lonely to go through this every day. Feel free to send me a message if you like. I am diabetis 2 for 8 years now. I live in Canada. Cheers

    You've come to the right place! I've got a couple of friends with type II but they don't take it personally - my friends here are the best at listening and helping.

    Welcome to the forum :)
