After reading the stories of other people that will be attending the event I feel like I'm with family. In a way we are, but it is so great to read other peoples stories and what they have dealt with in their time living with diabetes. The age of the attendees varies greatly which is great, reading emails from people that have had diabetes for over thirty years is very reassuring. I often worry about my future as a diabetic, after reading emails from people that grew up with no where near the technology that we have now I feel a little bit better. If they could be such great diabetics without the technological devices we have today then I need to stop feeling bad for myself and do the best I can everyday and stop complaining.
I'm so excited for the 5th of March!!! I can't wait to meet everyone but most importantly I can't wait to hold hands with my fellow diabetics and march to congress to change diabetes!! It will be a great week and I can't wait!!
