Need friends who understand

Hello my name is Jordan, I’m 18 and I was diagnosed with T1D almost a year ago. I’ve been struggling with feeling alone recently and my partner suggested that I should try to make friends with people who also have T1 that would understand what I’m going through.

Hi @fabulous_jordie Jordan welcome to TypeOneNation.

There are a lot of us here! It’s really common to feel alone or isolated, I hope you make a lot of friends here.


Hi, Jordan! I was diagnosed almost three months ago and I completely understand your frustration of needing/wanting someone who gets this rollercoaster of a lifestyle change! Please reach out if you ever need a listening ear!

Hi Jordan! I’m Abby; I’m 17 years old and I’ve had T1D since I was 7. I totally know what it’s like to feel alone with this condition! It really helps to chat with other teens who also have T1. I’ve created a few different group chats of T1 Teens and I’d love to add you to one! Feel free to pm me and we can exchange contact info.
