Hi there and Welcome!!

Hope you find this forum useful.  I can vouch that there are lots of great people here to meet!

Why don't you add a few details about yourself, such as type 1 or 2, as an intro?

Hi nice to meet you. Welcome to the boards! Being diagnosed with diabetes can confusing and frightening. My motto is that knowledge is power and I read everything I could get my hands on about diabetes and its' treatment. Are you taking any meds at this time? Everyone here is great...I'm sure it will be helpful to you. Take care & have a great weekend!.............Deb

Hi and welcome, aquarius. I'm new here, too. I spend most of my time in the Crohn's forum. I'm still learning the ropes in this one.
Take care. Lois

Im 21 and have recently been diagnosed with type1 diabetes. I only know 2 other people and it helps talking to people that are going through the same things.

Hi Tia and welcome! I'm type 1 too, and have been since I was 12. The only people I know with type 1 diabetes are the friends I've met right here!

Hi!  I was diagnosed with type 1 at 21.  20 years ago!  Take control of the disease, not the other way around.  It is amazing how may people have it around you and you just don't know.  Some people just choose not to let it become a central part of their life e.g. Hi, I'm Debbie the diabetic.  Take care of yourself and you will be fine.  MAXX
