I was wondering what everyone does to celebrate/acknowledge the anniversary of their diagnosis. I know it was particularly emotional the day that marked my turning
point from a life "more diabetic" than not. (I was diagnosed when I
was 10 so there is a memorable before and after for me.) To me, the d(x) anniversary is a more important day of the year than my birthday, but I am never sure how to share it with other people or explain it to them. There certainly aren't any societal norms to follow. I was thinking about using it a good reason for advocacy/awareness by baking something and asking for donations (of course, fielding all sorts of "how ironic" comments from people :]) for a diabetes-related organization, but that almost de-personalizes the significance of the date to me.
Open for suggestions...
