Today I celebrate 26 years living with Type 1 diabetes. 26 years!!! I remember being 18 & saying, "Man, I can't believe I've had diabetes for 3 years already!" That seems like last year.

Time flies & I am so fortunate to be happy & healthy after many finger pricks, needles, infusion sets, highs, lows, ups & downs, airport security checks, & a host of other challenges! Here's to me & to all of you touched by diabetes.

We are special people indeed!
