Hiya, i'm new to this place. I'd love to meet some diabetics from the UK if there's anyone else around. I've had diabetes since age 5 and i'm now 21. I'm sort of struggling a bit everything has been going wrong ever since i hit 13. Any tips or help is welcome and as you all get to know me you'll find i'll talk to anyone about anything at all because i'm silly like that. Hope everyone is well this seems like a great place, it does feel a bit lonely being the only diabetic i know and i have a feeling i'll make some good friends here.

Take care all.


PS: If anyone's wondering, i'm female :p

Hi Pop,

I'm also type 1 from the UK, and have been diabetic since I was 11 (now 26).  I've been struggling lots too, and I know the mistakes I make but somehow seem to make them again!  I find the whole 'trying to eat healthily and trying to balance insulin with it' thing is hard to stick to and to implement but the thing to do is just to keep trying!  I don't know any other type1 diabetics either (I have one t2 in the family though) and it can get a little lonely.  There are some great people on this website - some of them remain here and are steady contributers and some come and go, but you'll always get some advice here!  Hope you find it less lonely talking to us!
