Share your story

We're all going through a challenging time at the moment. Sharing a story is a great way to document how you are feeling, it might just inspire someone like you. Everyone has a unique story to tell and we'd love to hear yours.

Type 2 stories

We use real life stories of people with type 2 diabetes in a range of ways. We would love for you to join our amazing type 2  success group by sharing your story to inspire others.

We may share your story via the Know Diabetes email newsletter campaigns and on our website to inspire others.
