As I think back to that September 26th 1992, when at the age of 2 Kaitlyn was whisked to Stony Brook Hospital; medical staff ran around tending to her; tubes were attached; pain was administered; tears were shed; more tears were shed; I raced from New York City; I entered her room; she looked at everything attached to her; I pushed the hair out of her eyes, and I spoke.......Click here to read the entire…

Are you living on life support? I’m amazed when I read or hear some of the stories people relay living life with their children and the ‘new’ normal of diabetes in the household. Some good, some not so good. But let’s focus on the good and see if it can help those who live with such adversity in their life. Ask yourself this as you move forward reading, am I living to the fullest or am I allowing myself to be beaten?

Remember this; we all are living with diabetes and I am fully…

Posted on September 21, 2012 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1991 in his first year of law school at the age of 24 he was not to be deterred in his quest to be the best. He is one of America’s Ironmen Triathlon Athletes, an elite group of racers that endure incredible mental and physical challenges beyond comprehension. “To me racing Ironman with diabetes is an opportunity, not an obstacle.”

Opportunity indeed. He lives by the mantra....

nice story! I am on dlife all the time too. Thanks for the advocacy! I bet it was tough trying to take of you daughter... she was so young at her diagnosis. Your daughter is a year older than my niece, Cat, who was diagnosed when she was around 11. I was dxd at 12 in 1977, before home blood sugar meters and human insulin, and way before analog insulin. My story is in my blog "HI" I wrote when I joined TuDaibetes. Take care Tom!
