Another year, another…

Somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, I realized that I had completed another year living with Type 1 Diabetes.

Often, when the day comes around, I think about how great it is that I’ve lived with this chronic condition for so long, without any significant issues. Sometimes I even celebrate a little.

But this year, I was so obsessed with getting ready for this business trip, I completely forgot about the diaversary.

That’s the way it goes sometimes. After 24 years with diabetes, I can’t expect every year to be the same.

What was your last diaversary like?

    Isn’t that exactly what the goal is? To be bringing diabetes along while we focus on living our ‘real’ lives?

    Thank of sharing that and bring ing the Rose link along to help kids have the same goal, bringing diabetes along while focusing on life.

    I was so busy at Thanksgiving, I sort of forgot it was my 20 year diaversary. And that’s like, a big number, right? I’m OK with not celebrating it per se. I’m waiting to celebrate the day we can say, NO MORE DIAVERSARIES 🙂

    I always have mixed emotions. On one hand, I’m a little bummed, but on the other I’m really, really proud of myself for all the hard work I’ve done taking care of myself.

    April 2015 is a big one for me… 35 years! I think that calls for a party or something… 🙂

    Thanks for including #SpareARose in there, too. Every bit helps.
