@headfirstforhalos , Hi Vee, and welcome to the JDRF TypeOneNation Forum!

I’m not an insta person, and i haven’t boon 15 - 17 well over 6 decades, but I do have a couple of suggestions for finding other people diagnosed with T1D.

  • Contact your local JDRF Chapter, Resource tab at the top of this page, then JDRF Near Me. The chapter near me has subchapters for both teens and young adults.
  • Also at the top of this page is Events tab. Find something “diabetes related” right near you.
  • And, most important say something here about yourself. Like, go back to your sign-up and complete your Profile. Before chatting with anyone, I look to see if the requester might possibly be an interesting person - and interested in something to which I can relate.

Good Luck!

Hope you all connect!
