A couple of years ago my dad helped me track down my official discharge records. We always knew I was diagnosed in April, but now I have the actual date.
April 26, 1980 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
It is a date that I mark with tremendous gratitude. Two generations ago I would not be here today.
It is a date where I mentally recognize all of the hard work, determined effort, humble appreciation, and downright stubbornness that I put forth to live with this disease.
All of you in the Diabetes Online Community are a huge part of what keeps me going.

But imagine if someone told you that you had to drive across the country without a map and predetermine the precise amount of gas it would take to do so, not to the gallon, but to the drop.— Jessica Apple, http://asweetlife.org/jessica-apple/blogs/diabetes-management-blogs/st-happens-so-does-hypoglycemia/35177/
