    I really need to talk to someone who has a teen with D. I am having some issues here and I could really use some help from parents that have been there.

    Thanks

    Hi!

    Alex is 19. He's had D since he was 15. What do you need?

    I've got an 18 year old son so feel free to PM me as well in fact he himself may be willing to correspond with your teen.

    I am not a parent of a teen with diabetes, but I WAS a teen with diabetes myself. I was dxd at 8 years old and am now 23. If there's anything I can help with from a been there, done that kind of perspective, let me know.

    Similarly to Tricia, if you'd ever like any input from someone who's going through it at the moment, I'm always happy to help. I was dx'd at 14 and I'm 17 now.
