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.

memorable momentsI also remember a few days later being part of a conversation with a new friend (and FFL roommate) as she spoke hopefully about the future – a future that is now happening!

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.

    It’s too early in the morning to be making me cry, Sara! Meeting you is definitely one of my highlights, too – diabetes or not. 🙂

    I would say you have left me speechless, but we know that is not the case. I think I appreciate the shout out, but a picture of me would have worked just as well!
    No matter what we will always have Florida and Kansas City and Butter Frosting. (None of that was intended to sound dirty, if it did keep your minds out of the gutter.)
