Hi everyone my name is Emily and I’m 21 years old. I was diagnosed when I was 14 years old. Finally after 7 years, I’ve decided that I want to get more involved in the diabetic community and meet/help others! I’m from Long Island, New York and go to school at Stony Brook University. I’d love to chat and/or answer questions any newly diagnosed diabetics have! I look forward to talking with you guys!

Hi Emily! I’m also 21 and is love to be friend if you’re still interested? I’ve had diabetes since I was 9 months old and even though most of my family has grown up with me almost all my life they can’t truly understand what a T1D goes through unless they have it. I’m the I my one in my age group in my family with it so I’d love to make some friends near my age to relate to
