    I'd be interested, and I like the idea of eating, but we all live so far away from each other.

    I’m in the Rhondda Valley in South Wales but happy to travel and pick people up along the way. There’s a few of us in South Wales and the South West, I believe? I’ve got a driving licence for a bus now!

    I'm in Devon and I'd forgotten that you have a side line going as a bus driver!

    I'm interested in a meet up if it's possible around Life, the Universe and everything else. Being in the Midlands means I'm not actually too far from anywhere for travel purposes!

    I quite like the sound of this meet up already :)
    What would we be doing though? a walk and a meal? coffee, snacks and good ol' chat?

    I was diagnosed quite young - 8 years old, so I was out of school most of year 4-5 and I was out of school for few months in year 9.

    I wasn't off work. But very different scenario with diagnosis, never needed hospital and was misdiagnosed as a T2 first.

    Don't know about the acupuncturist but mine drops like a brick at the dentist. I suppose being scared and nervous takes a lot of energy and my diabetes doesn't seem to react to emotions very strongly.

    I was diagnosed at the beginning of the summer holiday break on my 8th birthday (pretty much taken down a couple of days before we broke up?) & was back to school in September.
