whoo! its been a year since being diagnosed. or maybe its tomorow? oh well.
it's hard to say congratulations for something I wish you never had, so I'll wish you many years of happiness instead.
Congrats on staying so strong and brave, especially throughout your first year with diabetes, Courtenay!
If you look back over the past year it'll probably seem amazing to see how much you've accomplished over such a short period of time. I know that in time you'll be a great mentor to someone who needs help. You have a lot of insight and your own personal experiences will help others who are having a hard time.
congratulations on making it through the first year. i always thought the first year was the toughest. now that you're a pro at diabetes, you can enjoy the other things in life :o)
