Diabetic Friends

Hello everyone my name is Felicia. I am 21 years old and was diagnosed in 2003. I have had diabetes for a while now but continue to struggle with it. It would be nice to talk to people who understand what I am going through. I have a wonderful support group but those individuals just see what I am dealing with and don’t know what it’s really like. I am looking to find friendships with other type 1’s. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had it for a while I’d love to hear your story.
Looking forward to hearing from you:)

Hi Felicia,

I’ve struggled with diabetes for 6 years now, and I continue to work on it every day (it Never seems to surprise me lol). I am currently right now learning/working through the transition of moving to college. I’ve found the best support is through this website, T1D camps, College Diabetes Network, and other sites. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me.


hey Felicia!

I’ve had diabetes for almost 4 years now and I just joined this site and started talking to people like myself. Feel free to message me anytime if you want to talk! :slight_smile: I’m currently in the process of moving in the college in the fall so its going to take some time to transition from living at home!

I had my sticky friend for 3 years and i’m doing well and its cool to see people who are like me i never had any friend until i joined this site and that makes me feel good and i always like to share whatever is going on.

Heyy Felicia:) I am 18 and had diabetes since I was 11. I have been through it all, starting on 2 injections per day, then 4 and now I’m on the pump… It has been the best for me. I am in my first year of Uni. It would be great to talk​:blush::blush::blush:

Hi Felicia,

I’m 23 and was diagnosed in '99 so 17 years ago now! I still struggle with having diabetes sometimes, like you I have great support from family but they don’t know what it’s really like to be dealing with it day in day out. Would be nice to hear from you :slight_smile:
