As a rebellious 12 year old, I never went to diabetes camp. I hated the idea...thought it was kind of dorky at the time.
I sometimes kick myself for not going now that I realize the importance of interaction with other T1's. I wonder if I would have had better control in high school, and a better attitude as a young adult.
Tonight I will try to redeem myself as I take a road trip to Arizona to support the fine folks from Triabetes and Insulindependence for the Ironman Race. I will be traveling with three other T1's from San Diego (Amy, Ashley, and Michelle...love you guys) and spending the weekend in Tempe...meeting and greeting some of the baddest ass T1's on the planet.
I'm stoked out of my skull.
I plan to return from this trip with a higher level of diabetes self-awareness...rejuvenated, redeemed, and re-inspired. One things for sure...I'm not worried about running out of test strips
