    Is the day I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. That's a day none of us will ever forget. It's been 9 years of finger pokes, insulin injections, learning, and battling highs and lo's. I remember when we were going through the learning, and the doctors were telling me I had an "incurable disease". As an 11 year old, the word disease meant death, and I honestly thought I was gonna die. I didn't think I'd ever get my drivers license, graduate high school, or go to college. But here I am, a sophomore in college, and I"m doing great. Sure there's been struggles, but I've overcame them with the help of famly and friends. Tonight I'm going to dairy queen, and I'm gonna have a large cheesequake blizzard to celebrate :p. Today= 9 years down, MANY MANY more to go :D
