Hey I'm Just Looking To Make Friends With Others That Have T1D

(Ethan) #1

Hi, I’m 15 years old and I’ve had T1D for 6 years now. I literally just found this site today and I’m wondering if there is anyone else out there that has T1D and is also a teen that wants to be friends…

Hey Ethan! I’m Abby; I’m also 15 and I’ve had T1D since I was 7. :slight_smile: I’d love to be friends!
I also have a Snapchat group chat with several other “T1 Teens”; if you have Snapchat we’d love to add you! My username is bookwormnerd13.
Please feel free to message me anytime!

Abbie, I just joined and I sent my daughter your Snapchat. I’m trying to find her a support group for T1D.

I hope that was ok.

Hey! Yes that’s great; I’d love to get to know your daughter! :slight_smile:

Hi Abbie. My daughter was recently diagnosed in Jan. She is 16 and pretty emotional about it. Her name is Laiya. Can you please add her to your snapchat T1 Teens? Her user name is Laiya.gabi.

God bless you all brave kids. Continue to take care of yourself and live to the fullest.

Hi Linda!
Yes, I’d love to have your daughter join our group!! Can you have her add me at bookwormnerd13? I tried adding her by username but it’s not working.

I’m 62 and have been living with type 1 for 12 months. Yeah, too old. . .

Seriously though, I do get great insight via the fora. Hang in there! Our daughter was diagnosed at 11 and she remains strong 14 years later.

Hello, I’m a parent of a 13 yr old. We could use some support and he could use some peers with the same health needs…does anyone live in San Antonio, Texas?
