"T1 changed the way I live, the way I eat, the way I think... no, I don't suffer from it. Maybe I don't have the life expectancy now that I did before, but I love every moment that I move about freely in this world, and that, as far as…"

Crystal replied to Robyn's discussion 'What were you Grateful for today?'
"I am very grateful for my health. I am so very grateful to still have feet... I think about that a lot. They hurt so much some days; I take it as a reminder that they won't always be there."

Is your husband still in the Navy? My husband was when I was first diagnosed, but he teaches here now, as do I. I see you have a fairly new diagnosis. The Navy didn't know what to do with me when I got pregnant with our second (I became diabetic between pregnancies), so they gladly let me go down to UW to deliver. In fact, they were happy to Champus me out for nearly everything diabetes related.
