    Well done Amy! Don’t underestimate what you’ve accomplished over the last ten years!

    Please let us know how you end up observing the date. Today is also my diaversary (32 years), but it’s the first one that I’ve really known the actual date… and I have absolutely no idea what to do… if anything.

    Happy tenth year anniversary Amy! I was thinking the other day how odd and fantastic it was at Diabetes Sisters’ conference when they called each of us 100 women up to celebrate how many years we’ve been living with, and managing, diabetes. And each of us was recognized with roaring applause.

    Celebrate it? Absolutely. Every day is an accomplishment. Like you, diabetes has become my purpose. What would I be doing if not this? ;-)

    Also, you don’t know that it will get harder. By time you’re at 15 or 20 years, yes, I know, I expect it to be much easier. I’m 41 years w/T1D, and each day just feels like an ordinary day because I’ve gotten so used to this.

    Congratulations on your 10-year anniversary! I was diagnosed in 1972, following a trip to Disney World (looks as though you were at Disneyland before diagnosis. One of the reasons I am so thankful for the internet is that I so enjoy reading diabetes logs, like yours. Sure wish we had had those (and blood glucose test strips!) 41 years ago!

    This year is my 10 year anniversary too! And I also have a photo of a skeletal me. I keep it as a reminder.

    So what does one say? “Congratulations on your disease.”? Well, you’ve done good in any case. Keep it up. It’s my favorite diabetes blog.

    Happy, happy, Amy!
    Today marks my 14-year-old son’s 13th diaversary! In some ways it feels like yesterday and in other ways it feels like a lifetime ago.

    Hello Amy, It helps to read that you have reached your ten years. I have been just diagnosed with type1 1 month ago and am still coming to terms with it. I have just stumbled across this website and your post and for a few moments i realize that im going to be ok. You and many people have delt with it im worse circumstances than mine. Hats off to you and many more celebrations for you to come.

    Happy diaversary, Amy, and thank you for D’Mine, my must read just about every day.

    You and the blog have opened my diabetic world to the greater DOC community, which even my closest friends don’t get.

    Looking forward to the Snap reports …
