I am a T1 coming up on my 25th anniversary. Sometime in August 1985, when i was 11. Its wild to think about! Been some years when i didnt take such good care, and some others when i have dont all i can to take care of all this stuff we need to think about. But its been a journey to "have a relationship with diabetes," as a therapist told me once, and i feel like commemorating somehow, but not sure how.
Just wondering if anyone came up with any great ways to "celebrate" all the strides we take to do what we gotta do...
Well, I simply celebrated by remembering the diagnostic day, and seeing the changes I've gone through, from diet soda, to blood sugar testing. Remembering how much I've done for my diabetes this last year and just keep doing what I do now for many future years to come hopefully. :)
