Anyone around my age?

I was wondering if there were anyone around my age (15) that would like to connect.
I don’t know anybody with diabetes in real life, so this would be greatly appreciated.


Hi Chloe! I’m Abby; I’m 16 years old and I’ve had T1D since I was 7. Nice to meet you!
I’m part of several different T1D teen group chats (email, text, and snapchat) and I’d love to add you to one of them! Please pm me with your contact info/social media if you want to join. Can’t wait to chat with you!

Hi my name is Michelle and I’m 15. I would love to be your friend.

Hey! I am 16 years old.
Would love to join other groups as well.

Great! Please pm me with your social media/contact info!

I’m so happy you’re finding some new friends here. My dd is only 7, but I hope that she will be able to follow in your footsteps and make great friends in the community.

Have you been to any diabetes summer camps? We are from the Iowa/Illinois area- bridging the Mississippi River - and we have a great diabetes camp that offers teen retreats. Camp Hertko Hollow is located in Boone, Iowa. If you’re not close to there, there are many other diabetes camps all over the place. Might be something fun to ask your parents about!
