So today is my 18th anniversary of my diagnosis.
I am kind of numb about it actually. I have gained so much weight that I feel kind of down about that but the dLife thing on Sunday has me kind of pumped up (no pun. Really.) so I am at a happy medium.
Diabetes sucks but it is not all bad.
There are lots of GREAT THINGS that I am HONESTLY thankful for that Diabetes has given to me.
Sara, Scott J, Kerri, Nicole, Bernard, Landileigh, Julia, Hannah, Vivian, Manny, Amy, Kelly, Gina, Allison, Scott S, Kathy, Amylia, Araby62, Jill, Chris, Cara, Lea, Matt, Bad Decision Maker, Karen, Shannon, Gaelyne, Molly, Windy, Art Sweet, Lee Ann, Heidi, Donna, Collen, Sandra, Chrissie, Drea, Chris, Floreska, tmana, are all my friends and so are many more that I know at this time I am forgetting.
Please know that each one of you makes it easier to check my blood sugars each day. Each of you help me to continue on this bumpy road to weight loss and lower A1C's. Each one of you has a special place in my heart and I am sure always will.
It is strange that I have met only 3 of you in real life but since we all share something so personal I feel like we are all old friends.
My hope is that all of you know me through this blog. I do try my best to open myself up and put all of my "stuff" out there for you all to see. Not only for your feedback to help me out but also to hopefully provide further proof that you are not alone.
I love you all and thank you for your friendship.
