Welcome Kayla!



Welcome to Ben’s Friends Kayla! Interesting username :slight_smile:

This is one of the few times where someone your age (14) has joined this forum. Often times parents join on behalf of their kids and I try to encourage them to get them to sign up themselves, so I’m glad you’re here! Also, I’m really impressed that you joined so quickly after your diagnosis. It shows you really want to get a head start on things, which i admire.

Although you may not necessarily find many patients here around your age, I can assure you that there are LOTS of people here that know what you’re going through. They may have some tips and tricks to help you get through school and manage your symptoms effectively.

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or get involved in the discussion - this community is here for you!

Once again, welcome to Ben’s Friends Kayla!


Thank you! Means a lot!!


Kayla, Eisi is one of our interns. He’s a really nice guy (read his profile). If you ask him nicely, maybe he’ll help you look for other teenagers on the site. He’s got great search and research skills!
