Today marks a milestone in my daughter’s life with diabetes.
Though we might have cupcakes on her d-anniversary to celebrate another year lived well despite diabetes, this milestone is not a happy occasion.
Today Q has lived half her life with diabetes.
Starting tomorrow she will have lived the majority of her life with diabetes.
She lived 3 years, 9 months, and 12 days as a normal, healthy, carefree, child without burdens.
As the years tick by she will no doubt forget what it was like before she was diagnosed.
