    Hi Leah - I'm Becky! I am a fellow diabetic also looking for other diabetics to talk to :) I am 20 years old and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2000 at the age of 7. Would be nice to hear back from you. Becky

    Hi Leah where are you. I am running some workshops for Type 1s in Berkshire (13-19 years old) see my Facebook page 'Diabetes family maidenhead berkshire' and perhaps we can arrange a meet up. Deb

    Hey I'm also diabetic. I'm 16 and was only diagnosed September 2013. I'd love to be able to talk to people that also go through what I do every day. Please feel free to pm me. I'd be really thankful for someone to talk to about diabetes. Thanks :)
