Hey everyone! :)

Hello, my name is Ashley and I am 25. I’m type 1 diabetic (diagnosed 8/6/08). I just wanted to introduce myself. I am looking for some companionship with another diabetic. I don’t know many people who truly understand. Willing to talk here or on other platforms such as SnapChat. Just trying to find people to provide support for each other. Who’s in?

Hey Ashley! I’m Abby; I’m 15 and I’ve had T1D since I was 7. I know I’m a bit young but I’m always here if you want a friend or someone to talk to! :slight_smile:

. . . and I’m Carl. I’ve had Type 1 diabetes since I was 61. I’m 62 now.

That said, our daughter, now 24 was diagnosed when she was 11. So, I had a bit of context before my diagnosis and have seen a lot of first hand concerns develop in her life, which prepared me for lifestyle changes in my new-found diagnosis.
