As of yesterday, I have had diabetes for 20 years.
I always encourage people to celebrate their diaversary. I always have. I think living another year with diabetes is one of the hardest things a person can accomplish. Even day to day, diabetes is just difficult. I’m impressed with people who have publicly shared their stories, struggles, and coping.
So why does 20 feel like defeat to me?
Hit me up in the comments, on twitter, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m interested to hear your opinions and experiences on the topic.
