    Today i'm celebrating 5 years of being Type 1 diabetic! Seems like yesterday but still going strong! Christmas is always a reminder of me being diagnosed and being in hospital just days before Christmas day!
    Merry Christmas to you all! And remember to enjoy the celebrations and enjoy the food! :singing::hungry::)

    Congratulations! Not on being T1, you understand, but on taking control of it.

    Your next job is to prepare for the day when you celebrate putting a zero after the five :)
