Looking for teen friends with T1D :)


(Hadden) #1

Hey my name is Hadden and I’ve had T1D for about 5 years I recently just went through a pretty rough bout of DKA. I’m out of the hospital now but after this last bout it seems like it’s been harder and harder to take care of my self. I also battle with some depression and a pretty bad case of general anxiety disorder. I’m just looking for a friend to talk to and hopefully help me be positive so I can feel more myself again.

(Sabrina) #4

Hi Hadden and Abby! I’m Sabrina and I’ve had T1D for just under 2 years but this past winter I experienced really bad burnout which caused a lot of issues with depression and anxiety that I still struggle with on a daily basis. I’m the only T1D in my school and don’t really know any other teens with T1D. I go through so much frustration with my parents with T1D combined with school and I don’t really know anyone else who really understand how hard things can be with T1D sometimes. I would love to talk to you both!

(Maddie) #6

Hi Hadden! My name is Maddie and I’m 16 years old. I have been a diabetic for a little over 2 years now. When I got diagnosed, I was in a DKA coma in Tennessee on spring break. Coming home with new challenges and living a new life sucked. No one understood how I felt or what I was going through. I felt alone. A month ago, my doctors said I’m still grieving my ‘old life’. I get angry really easily, emotional, and just really frustrated. I hate that this happened to me and you as well. If you ever need to vent or just talk or need a friend, I’m always here! My snap: whetsell_19. Hope everything gets better soon! Much love!
