4 Days Late! Darn it!!!

A diabetic friend named Molly (check out her blog: ) recently celebrated her 15th diabetic anniversary on September 8th. That got me thinking about when my anniversary is so I looked it up at my parents house yesterday and discovered I was 4 days late! Darn it! 09/14/1993 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. However, I did have an incredible weekend with my girlfriend Molly, not the same Molly as noted above, we went for a hike out at Brandywine Falls. So I guess maybe my subconscious knew the day.

The only thing that's been going on longer than my diabetes at this point is my sisters school career. lol Good luck on you paper Kim! :)

But that's a long time without any complications and few incidences from the diabetes. I'll show my collection of meters in a later blog but I still have my original onetouch meter that do the old 30 second count down and all. They have changed drastically and all the changes have been made for two reasons: 1. To improve the accuracy and convenience of controlling diabetes, 2. to improve the quality of life for all diabetics. Can't beat that!

Well, I guess, happy belated anniversary to myself! I hope everyone out there in blog world is doing great!!!

P.S. My brother is home from the hospital and doing well. Recovery is a process but he is moving right along!!! :)

Wow, happy belated diaversary. Here's to either 15 more years with no complications OR less than 15 more years because we FINALLY get a cure!! I wish I still had my first meter. I don't remember when I got it, but it was sometime in the early '80s. That thing was HUGE!!!
