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.
