31 Year Diabetes Anniversary

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.

Thank you!
