Diabetes Blog Week Day 3 – Memorable Moments

Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere…. your or your loved one’s diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share. (Topic suggestion from Jasmine of Silver-Lined)

I had met friends with diabetes before, but there was something extra special about that day.

That was the first day I met many of the people for the first time who have become some of my closest friends (with or without diabetes – do we still need this disclaimer?!).

There are many stories from that day, including trying to figure out what the deal was with the one guy whose jokes didn’t make sense until I found out about his real job. He still doesn’t make a ton of sense, but now I know that is just him.

There are plenty of annoying, frustrating, scary, and discouraging “memorable” moments with diabetes but I don’t have to look very far to find the really wonderful ones too.
