Hi Anna, Congratulations!
One thing you could consider is to really appreciate yourself for all you have done to keep yourself healthy--every finger stick, every shot, every time you didn't eat something you might have wanted to, and everything else you've done for your health. It's really something to be proud of!
Enjoy your day today--and that day, too!
I do the same thing Marty does but I take it one step further. This past January I passed the 18 year mark and decided to crunch some numbers. For me, Id done 18,980 shots over the first 13 years (I've been pumping for 5 years) and about 45,990 finger sticks over the total 18 years. More graphically that is somewhere in the neighborhood of 733 feet of cold sharp steel I've shoved into my body in the name of trying to stay healthy.
Having seen those numbers I celebrate by doing something I might not be able to do if my complications were worse. I go for a stroll and enjoy being outside. I might take in some beautiful sights that I might miss if my vision went. In other words, I celebrate what I have and pat myself on the back for doing as well as I have with this challenging ogre that is never far away.
