    There is quite a few people on here around your age. You most definitely ain't alone. It gets a lot easier to manage, especially after looking through the forum. Good luck x

    Hope you find Type 1 friends soon! I'm 64, feel 12, diagnosed Type 1 for almost a year and no one who knows me in person thinks I'm more than 50 !

    Hi, plenty on here, some nice helpful friendly people. When I was diagnosed I didn't know anyone with type 1, no internet either.
    Keep posting and take care x
