Great Doris! My 39th won't be 'til next March, but we are still on the same wavelength.
And I also think you have the right to brag about the fact that you are a dear sweet lady and a most valued friend to many here on TD.
We love you!!!!

Congrats! I was diagnosed in 1974, so it's been 38 years for me. I was only 3 years old, and I don't know my exact diagnosis date.

For those with 25+ years of diabetes, did you receive any acknowledgment of the milestone? I know some people do, but not sure through who. At 50 years, you'll get a plaque and a gift of some kind.
