Pen pal!

(BookwormNerd13) #1

Hi all!
I’m Abby! I’m new to this website. I’ve had T1D since I was 7 years old (I’m now 15) and I’d love to connect with other T1D folks my age. Here’s a little bit about me:
~I live in the suburbs of Chicago
~I play flute in my school band
~I love math and science (I want to be a doctor someday)
~I’m a total Broadway nerd (Hamilton, In the Heights, Dear Evan Hansen, Newsies, Waitress, etc)
~I’m a singles player in my school tennis team
~I looooooooove Harry Potter (Gryffindor!!) and Lord of the Rings (Legolas is my fave heart eyes) and pretty much all other books
Please reach out to me at if you want to be pen pals! <3

Hey Abby!
I’m a little younger than you, at thirteen, but I’ve had diabetes for 9 years, and I noticed we have a lot in common. I love Hamilton, In the Heights, Harry Potter (I’m in Slytherin though), and Lord of the Rings (but Aragorn is my favorite), and I play the flute in my middle school band! I would love to talk with you more, and I really need something to do during the week haha.
Hope we can talk soon!
