Lonely diabetic teen


(Georgina) #1

So i have been a type one diabetic since I was 20 months old and I am now 16. I go to a small school where there are only 3 other diabetics and they are in grade 5 and lower. I’ve been struggling to find an easy community (online) that always me to easily connect with other diabetic teens and maybe have a convo on how they manage theirs. I would really love to hear from someone other than my parents that knows the difference between type 1 and 2 and that I didn’t get my diabetes from to much Halloween candy! Thanks!:innocent:

Hi Georgina, my daughter has loved the Instagram group started here by teens on the forum. If you search “Instagram” under “coping and support” you can find the way to connect. Best wishes to you!

Hey, ai would suggest getting the Beyond Type 1 app, there are many teens and young adults on there! Everyone is so supportive and welcoming! It has really helped me!
