Hi, My name is Nicky. I have type one diabetes since I was 8 years old, so I have it now for 30 years. I live in Ireland with my two Children Jess 6 and Chris 11. I'v been blessed so far with good health, but I do find coping with diabetes a struggle, in a physical, mental and emotional sense. I think that because diabetes is such a common disease these days that thoes who do not have it think its no big deal. However, I do think its a big deal and unless you have experienced living with it, then you have not idea how difficlut it can be sometimes. Thats why I'm so delighted to have found this site and am looking forward to getting to know some new friends.
