I have had diabetes for one year today

I was diagnosed on Jan. 28 2008, and it is the 28 of 2009. It has been the longest year, but I have grown up so much. I am glad that I have been diagnosed because I look at life a different way that I never have before, but it really has made me a better, healthier person. I enjoyed the hospital stay a lot, probably because it was like my life was saved, as you know, the symptoms feel like you are dying. I still like to replay it in my head, because that was a life changing moment...

I know just what you're talking about when you say "life changing moment." I wish to help you understand how important it is to keep your levels in the normal ranges. To do that, I recommend that you go to my site and read my profile. It should open a few peepers out there. When you've read it, let's discuss it and what you can do to NOT follow in my old footsteps.

Keep on keeping on!

my one year anniversary was so long ago, I don't remember much except dropping pills in test tubes of urine. You say that you are a better healthier person. THAT KICKS ASS and makes you a hero IMO! Keep it up Daniel!
