Yes, you are quite right about there being a silver lining. I took a great interest in biology at school, really loved it. I doubt this would have happened had I not had a personal interest in health and such. I was also a little more grown up than my friends because I became diabetic at the age of ten. I can also very much relate to being a little bit selfish as a mum. I often tell my two girls that no I will not pick up after them, I have more important things to do, like blood tests. It works for now.
