As a rebellious 12 year old, I never went to diabetes camp. I hated the idea...thought it was kind of dorky at the time.
I sometimes kick myself for not going now that I realize the importance of interaction with other T1's. I wonder if I would have had better control in high school, and a better attitude as a young adult.
Tonight I will try to redeem myself as I take a road trip to Arizona to support the fine folks from Triabetes and Insulindependence for the Ironman Race. I will be traveling with three other T1's from San Diego (Amy, Ashley, and Michelle...love you guys
) and spending the weekend in Tempe...meeting and greeting some of the baddest ass T1's on the planet.
I'm stoked out of my skull.
I plan to return from this trip with a higher level of diabetes self-awareness...rejuvenated, redeemed, and re-inspired. One things for sure...I'm not worried about running out of test strips ;)
