Weird question, huh? I think that being dx'd was devastating, not leaving much to be positive about. But every cloud always has a silver lining. Whether it be the people around you or feeling better than you did when you got that first shot of insulin. For me: The paramedics. They made me comfortable on the ride to the hospital, turned off the lights in the back so I could go to sleep. But the thing is they were only there to transport me there to the nearest local hospital, but they that hospital wasn't equip enough to deal with a child w/ diabetes. So when they could have left, and left me waiting there for 4 hours. Instead they decided to drive to Walter Reed. They were the nicest people I met that day.
