10 years ago I was 54 years old.
10 years ago I knew very little about Diabetes because…
10 years ago I didn’t have Diabetes.
10 years ago the flu shot was restricted to people older than 54.
And so, in 2004, I wasn’t able to get a flu shot…
10 years ago, I got the flu, just after Christmas. I was really sick.
(Our furnace broke that week, too.)
(The only thing I wanted to eat was chocolate milkshakes. Yup, no joke…)
Three months after that, I was diagnosed with Diabetes.
You know, sometimes, life just sort of sucks.
Sometimes I feel sorry for myself.
Who am I kidding? I feel sorry for myself every single, damn day.
And then I feel very, very, very lucky that I found the DOC people.
And then – I read other d-blogs, other d-facebook posts…
And I coped – just like the rest of you – just like all of us.
Happy New Year!
