I will never forget the moment in our kitchen in Phoenix were Manuel told me he was diagnosed with Type I diabetes, and was going to be insulin dependent for the rest of his life. I remember the fear blurred my vision while I tried my best to not let it show (the fear), so I could be the steady support still thrive to be for him.
It has been few years since then, and this condition has defined and shaped our life in so many positive ways that today I can not simply visualize our life without this experience… it will be like not being who we are, definitely not being who I am now, a woman who understands a bit more how fragile our health, happiness is.
So, I am actually glad that I don’t have that choice. I am living the present. Now, if we could find a cure, and I don’t have to see him going thought a low or a high never again, or all the frustration and fear that comes with them… if we don’t have to worry about that, that will be something. I am sure we can have another community around that too!
