    I went to camp Midicha too! Although I didn’t learn any cool tricks like that. I have mixed feelings about my experiences at D camp, but you’re right, it does make you who you are today.

    Blogged about this a few years ago…I remember the day that photo was taken, the cupcakes made me nauseated but I pretended to be ok for my parents sake. http://www.araby62.com/2008/02/25-years-agopart-three.html

    Mike, thank you SO MUCH for confessing your feelings about diabetes camp! These days, I read so much about how much people loved their camp, and when I recall NOT liking mine, I feel like it’s a problem with me, not the camp.

    Yes, I was homesick. Yes, I didn’t enjoy the “structure”. And yes, I was angry when my cabin-mates threw rocks at a beehive and all the bees came out to sting ME in the back of the head.

    Again, thanks for another story reassuring me that I’m not the only one.

    My memories are kind of jumbled about my diagnosis too and are probably generated more from what my mum has told me about it (I was 4 when diagnosed so a similar age) so could relate to your post in this respect.

    Absolutely amazing that you could do your jabs so early on after being diagnosed – whether you remember it clearly or not, you should be proud of that :)

    Thank you for sharing these events in your life with us and I hope your memories to come of diabetes (and otherwise) are good ones! Looking forward to more posts from you during D-Blog week and afterwards.
