6 Years Today

6 years ago today I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
6 years ago today I was in year 9 at school.
6 years ago today I was sick, tired, thirsty and scared.

Today I had a 10hr day at uni.
Today I'm in my dream course.
Today I did my first full child language assessment.
Today I give myself a pat on the back for hitting day 2190 with type 1 diabetes. My diaversary isn't a bad thing, it's the day I recognise that I've lived with this thing for a long time, but I haven't let it stop me. I've achieved far more since diagnosis than I did beforehand.

Today, the 5th of May, is a good day.


  1. Happy Diaversary Bec

    Beautiful summary of how well you have lived with T1D; be proud of yourself!
