    Wow. I wish I had some of that gratitude and optimism. What an inspiring story, Aisha! You seem a genuine advocate for people’s selfcare. I am sure you will make a huge impact in diabetes awareness and acceptance, not only in UAE, but also (obvious from your post here) the world. Congratulations on being such a high-spirited advocate!

    I am going to copy the quote that your father told you at diagnosis and send it to my son. That was beautiful! Thanks!

    It is true that God has given us a gift. Imagine if we were alive 100 years ago. We would only live a year or so, instead of the many years we can live because of the development of insulin. Your parents are loving and wise, too. Thank you for sharing your story.

    Thank you for telling your story here. You indeed are a very lucky person to have such wise, loving, and supportive parents.

    Your description of diabetic health care in your country is an “eye-opener” to many in the West, particularly the U.S. So many of my fellow citizens here in the U.S. still cling to the belief that the U.S. health care system is the best in the world. Your story emphasizes that the U.S. has a long way to go to catch up to such a wonderful and caring system they you enjoy in the U.AE.

    Good luck to you!

    I agree that US health care should be improved but the situation isn’t comparable to the UAE which enjoys tremendous wealth and thus resources to expend on diabetes.

    Great post! I’m curious on how often most patients are able to visit the centre – it sounds like you must be close to it.

    I find that to visit my ‘center’, it is at least a half day off work due to travel time, wait time, etc. I would never be able to go once/every two weeks! How enviable!
