    Beth, aged 16, I'm looking to meet some new people who understand diabetes rather than the ignorant sods at my school, been a diabetic since I was 3, on a pump for 2 years, and I like cats and Quentin Tarantino! Basically looking to make new friends, please message!

    Hiya Beth my names Kayla, I'm 23 and have been type 2 for about 4 years.
    I know it can be hard sometimes as people who don't have diabetes or know anyone who has can be so ignorant and rude towards it, I come across it a lot even with older people.
    But anyway I'd like to be your friend and maybe we can chat with each other about our diabetes and the fun things in life of course! :) x

    Hey! I'm Foxx, I'm seventeen and been diabetic for almost fifteen years now, been on the pump for almost eight years.
    I have a cat called Tilly (because that was the most unique name I could think of in a second...), and I am easy to talk to about anything :'p
