Ten years and a new life

Ten years ago tonight I almost died. I had gone to urgent care the day before and the PA told me to make an appointment with an endocrinologist as soon as possible to be put on insulin. The earliest appointment was four days later. When I was admitted to the hospital that night through the emergency room, the doctor told me I probably would not have made it to that appointment.

Ten years ago I started a new life, a life with diabetes.

I guess it is only fitting that today I started a new life too. I spent most of the day unpacking all my stuff in my new place. The new job will start later in the week.

Tonight, the first order of business was to find a good cupcake… or two.

    HAPPY DIAVERSARY & HAPPY NEW LIFE!!!
    I’m glad you got yourself into the emergency room and checked into the hospital – We all are!
    The world (and the DOC) are much more fantastical with you in it!
    And way to score on the cupcakes!!!

    I am so glad you survived!

    Those look like teeny-tiny cupcakes. Maybe have one for each year?

    I’m pathetically behind on blogs (as usual, lately) but I couldn’t miss out on wishing you a happy (belated) diaversary and happy “new life”!!!! Hope those cupcakes were as fantastic as they look.

    Totally thought I commented on this post. Guess it was just a powerful thought brought on of course by a powerful post.
    I enjoyed reading this. Short and sweet!
