Ok, I have been looking around on this place and so far I have only found no one younger than me or the same age as me. Am I the youngest involved member of this web site? I'm 16, born December 7, 1994.

No. You're approx. 2.5 decades younger than me. And yes, I enjoy talking to young people. I have a niece that is your age. Actually she's a tad younger than you. She was born in April of '95. But yes, I do enjoy talking to people who are younger than myself. It makes me feel young again.

No, you're not.
But, as respectfully as I can ask…
why does it matter?

Taking care of yourself is your goal. There's good advice and experience here.

I love talking to older people, but there are different needs that teenagers have and need to talk about with other teens. For instance, when we want to talk about our favorite tv show instead of diabetes for once; I can almost bet you there will not be many older people who watch Teen Wolf on MTv.

Fair enough; however, then why ask "Am I the youngest?"
Why not just ask who wants to talk about…whatever?
If you're right, the "older" people won't respond.
Take a look, you'll find people of all ages who want to encourage you.
I hope you find all that you're looking for. You seem like a very pleasant
and friendly person.

No you are wrong I am 62 going on 8 so that makes me younger that you. So don't try and steal my thunder

No I think I am… I'm 13… But age doesn't matter here. We are all treated like equals and like to help each other

Newly diagnosed just over a year ago myself. I am 42 going on 43. I have seen a couple of people close to your age. Will not lie to you though, don't remember their names. Age is not a question here, although I can understand you wanting to chat with someone your age. If I find a person your age, I will refer them to ya. Not much help here, as I said, newly diagnosed myself. Hope to be able to help you if I can. Darrin

While I'm sure it would be nice to connect with girls your own age, much wisdom can be acquired from people of different ages than yourself who have dealt with diabetes for a while. Think of them as your older sisters, loving aunts, and special friends. Believe me they will be invaluable as you proceed on your journey with this disease. Whenever something is new and terrifying, you don't need others who are new to the experience and just as frightened as you; rather, you want experienced veterans who have already encountered the challenges which lay ahead, and can reassure you about your future. You have a whole host of people on this site who can help you with their knowledge, support and encouragement. Utilize them and ask them about everything which is a concern to you. Lorie Ann

There is a member here named Jessie and she is in the 6th grade (I believe) There are other kids on site as well. They may not be as involved as others, but they are here. Hopefully you will find some to chat with.

And if you can't find those....other December babies are fine. I'm one. Love those Sagittarius'! =0)

Well, a birthday of Oct. 14th makes me a Libra also. And I find it hard to believe that you have not met another Libran… with a normal random distribution of birthdates of one in 12 being a Libra, I'm betting you know a few, you just don't KNOW they are, since you most likely don't know everyone you know's birthdate.
Not picking on you, just pointing out odds.

Be proud of what sign you are. There are good qualities to every single one. I am sure there are other Libra's out there.
