Old glass syringeWe have come a long way since I was diagnosed in 1980. That being said the tools never move far enough fast enough.

But – I often think about how diabetes was managed back even before I was diagnosed. Just the fact that we are able to test the current level of glucose in our blood, rather than trying to match colors of strips from urine that could be hours old!

Hearing stories of people that had to sharpen their own needles, sterilize their own syringes, etc.

These stories make me thankful for the tools we have today – while it is still a hard road to travel, the cars have become much more comfortable…
