Seven Decades Of Type 1

My story has been posted on Diabetes Mine today (7/3/15). Thanks Michael Hoskins!

Note: My actual 70 years will be completed in mid Sept.


Congrats Richard! Thank you for all you have done and continue to do each and every day.

I am very close to your diaversary date, but not the year. Like you, I don’t remember the exact date, but I know it was a few days before my dad’s birthday on 9/16, so I choose to mark 9/13. Of course, I was diagnosed in a different year, 1973.
