Hi, my name is Callie! I’m not completely sure how this website works! I was recently diagnosed with diabetes two months ago and I’m looking for people to communicate with:) If anyone would like to talk my snapchat is calliecookies and my instagram is callie_cookies !

Hi Callie @Calliecookies, Welcome to TypeOneNation!
This site is for persons with TypeOne diabetes [PWD] to meet and share their experiences with T1D, to ask questions, share experiences, rant & moan, and just be with others who share our diabetes condition. Also for caregivers of PWD. For the most part, people sharing here are not medical professionals but rather people like me offering experiences - both positive and negative - of what we have learned while trying to manage our own diabetes.

I don’t currently use snapchat but I do have more than 60 years managing diabetes. Seeing your picture I see you are a tender age and not an oldtimer like me so I think you would be much more comfortable chatting with some of the many teens & 20’s who often appear here. Do feel comfortable asking [me] anything about diabetes, you are just beginning on your journey and will want suggestions from-time-to time.
