I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 8 months old - October 4, 2001. It's been an amazing journey....one that has made me the strong and independent 8 year old that I am today. In a sick twist of fate, my best friend was diagnosed with Type 1 just 2 weeks ago. How can life be so cruel...
