Overlooked Milestone

Last month I handed a milestone that I neglected. It wasn’t enormous. Not price main fanfare or a birthday cake. (Oh how I really like birthday cake!) However it’s a time of celebration. A time for me to consider what I’ve achieved. Last month marked eight years with Type 2 diabetes. 

I used to be identified in March 2008 which wasn’t a lot of a shock. I had gestational diabetes with all 5 of my pregnancies. I’ve a household historical past of Type 2. I assumed I might get it. Unfortunately I bought it a pair many years earlier than I used to be anticipating. Getting Type 2 in your 30s is not one thing that many individuals count on. 

There have been ups and downs on my journey with diabetes. There are days of denial. Days of frustration. Days I wish to surrender. However there are days I really feel victorious. Days I embrace my situation. Days I am grateful for the buddies I’ve made. Friends that have been launched to me by diabetes.

Yes, having diabetes stinks. Ok, truthfully it sucks. However I am grateful to be part of the diabetes on-line group (DOC). They are my household and I really like all of them.

So to anybody celebrating their diaversary within the close to future…. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
