I am here because my mother-in-law has diabetes. She was diagnosed at age 7, in 1935. She is an amazing woman - 82 this summer!
You and she have come a long way.
Are you in Canada or the US?
I've only had it for 8 days. :'[
I was diagnosed 4/1983 so (optimistically speaking) it'll be 28 years this year...
