10 years ago today...my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This is a day in my history that I'll never forget. I remember that day as if it was yesterday. It's hard to believe that 10 years have past. If it wasn't for my diabetes, I wonder where I would be at. Having diabetes has not been the easiest thing in my life but a few wonderful things have come from having diabetes.....
***I have two adorable children. I'm not sure if I would have adopted if I didn't have diabetes. I decided to adopted because the increase risk to my health and the baby's health with my diabetes.
***I have one of my best friend, Marque. Marque and I met because of my diabetes. She was the instructor of my education classes when I was first diagnosed. Today, she is my go to person when I need help or am just frustrated with my diabetes. I owe alot to Marque because she taught me so many things about diabetes and how not to fear this disease.
***I have a great job. Would I have become a diabetes educator if I didn't have diabetes? I get teach people about diabetes and hopefully make them not afraid of this disease. Not everyone listens to what I have to say but when they do....I realize I have this disease for a reason.
My diabetes has not always been in the best control. I try hard but it is not easy dealing with this disease.
Thank you to all my family and friends that have been me support, a shoulder to cry on, and love during the past 10 years.
