Diaversary!!!

Happy 17th Diaversary to me!!! If you don’t know, a diaversary is the anniversary of a diabetes diagnoses. On March 11, 1995 when I was 7 years old I was told I have Type 1 Diabetes.

I was going to do this whole big post on my diagnoses story and this & that but that seems…eh not so fun. So I wanted to make a list of things my diabetes hasn’t stopped me from doing:

  • Flying in a plane
  • Being in Marching Band (band geek whoo!!!)
  • Dating
  • Learning French (not that I have anyone to talk to)
  • Graduating with Honors
  • Horseback Riding
  • Going to Disney, & Universal, & visiting my Florida family
  • Going on a cruise
  • Going out with friends
  • Camping
  • Dancing around like a fool every chance I get
  • Going to my first live baseball game
  • Running two 5k’s
  • Getting Married
  • Buying my first home
  • Getting a dog
  • Going to Merlefest
  • Going to Williamsburg, VA
  • Getting pregnant (♥)

So I left a lot of things out & it’s not exactly in order but hey, it shows that over the last 17 years I’ve not let me diabetes define my life. Yes it’s a big part but it’s not the only part.

Here’s to another 17 years (& many more) with my rude, unwilling to contribute pancreas. 17 more years of changes & upgrades in diabetes care and management. But mostly, 17 more years of living life to the fullest, with my husband at my side, & a whole bunch of babies!!!
