Today marks my 26th year of having juvenile diabetes. I was diagnosed at age three, about to turn four, and now I'm 29, about to turn 30.
So, not only do I feel old, I feel like I'm in pretty dang good shape for having had diabetes this long. I've never passed out from a high; I've never had kidney problems; I've never had vision or nerve damage.
Times have changed, technology has changed. It's a good time to be diabetic, actually.
