I was diagnosed at 19 but this was 11 years ago. I was across the world in college and know how it feels. message me if you need to talk.

hi, I was also 19. I recommend reading a book like Pumping Insulin so that you really get to know how our bodies react an deal with type 1. looking back at the college years I did a lot of stupid and scary stuff and I didn't know how risky those things were. But you can come out the other end

stronger than you were before. Also, get involved with the diabetes online communit. Google this on twitter #iwishpeopleknewthatdiabetes. you will realize you aren't alone in this.
