Happy Anniversary (haha) I also am celebrating my anniversary...It was 20 years ago this month when I was first diagnosed.
I also remember the day I was diagnosed like it was yesterday. I also remember my 2 experiences passing out from low blood sugars and being rushed to the hospital like they were yesterday. Hopefully I won't have to add anymore memories like those.
Maybe instead...We will be able to add memories of a cure to our memory bank sometime in our lifetime... or maybe a vaccine to protect our loved ones from this disease. Would that be incredible !!!!
I am happy to say that it doesn't feel like 20 years. The strange thing is that I don't remember what it felt like to not be Diabetic. It is so much a part of who I am now that it just feels normal. I wish it didn't but it does. The one thing that I am so grateful for is that I (we) are Diabetic in a time when medicine and technology are so amazing. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be Diabetic 30 or 40 years ago!!!
Have an amazing day. Best wishes to you as you start your Diabetic journey.
