I've been thinking about what I know about diabetes after having it for 20 years. As I mentioned before, April 10th is the 20th anniversary of my diagnosis and I want to commemorate it in some way. Flying home from a business trip yesterday, I decided that what I want to do is make a list of the 20 things I really know about my journey with diabetes. I'll make a book or something, at the end of the process. And the process will be a way to move from the last 20 years to the next. I like the idea of closing one chapter and moving on to a new one.
So it's March 27th, two weeks before the 10th of April. Over the next couple of weeks I'll post the things I really know about my life with diabetes. Hopefully, it'll be done on the 10th. If not, that's ok too. One of the things I've learned is to be a bit gentler on myself, even though it's not thats not the first place I naturally go. So that's the plan. We'll see what emerges.
