    I have about 3-4 years to go, pretty sure it was either December 1970 or 1971.

    I'm going to make myself a medal out of tin foil and sticky back plastic! I think I deserve one for dealing with 2 of us diagnosed within 5 days of one another. I wonder how many other families type 1 has effected that quick? We're just weird :D

    I did think it was horribly unlucky to begin with but now I feel very lucky. I get to travel this bumpy type 1 road alongside my beautiful daughter. :)

    I haven't applied for a medal. Are they worth anything? Could I flog it and buy some sensors at all?

    Sorry, iHs, they're not real gold. I was unimpressed with mine, and the lettter was nothing special. Quite an anticlimax to my years of thinking I'd never make it, I've just left the medal in a drawer.
    I don't know why some people have an item in the newsletter, it's nothing special now that diabetes care has moved forward so far and we can all live a long life.
