Hey Victoria, I meet new type-1 diabetics all the time as they tend to spot my pump. I am new too this app and can tell that we are all here to support each other. I was diagnosed on 2/21/12 when I was 20 yrs old. If ya wanna talk let me know. Hang in there.

Hello,I have been diagnosed with type 1 now for 8 years I felt as if I couldn't do things as what normal people do but then as I got older it got easer since you have only had it for 1 year it is really hard to get used to having it and keeping it under control I am sure you will be okay

Hey! I had the same issues! I was getting myself down! I am 20 and have had type one diabetes for 14 years this year! I was the only person I knew with type one diabetes and it really got me down! I have recently started on an animas pump which has changed my life! No longer tired! I can work out and from this I have controlled my diet to low carb options! It has really changed me and I am able to do a double degree whilst working two jobs and am rarely tired! Hope you are ok! I am here to talk if you need xx
