I’ve had Type 1 for well over 20 years. I’m pretty sure it’s 22, maybe 23 years ago now, actually. But time goes so fast, and I’m not one of those people that knows my exact “diaversary”, so I can’t be totally sure.
But for sure, it was a long time ago.
I can still remember some things about my pre-diagnosis symptoms . And I can still remember a few things about that big learning curve I went through during those first few months upon diagnosis. And there’s little funny stories and things related to my “diabetes journey” that I can still recall.
It’s fun to remember back to something that happened so long ago, and that I was so overwhelmed by at the time. I love looking back, and then seeing how far I’ve come. Type 1 turned out to be a lot less life altering than I first thought it might be. So, I’ve been jotting down a lot of those stories lately, in hopes of preserving what’s left of those memories. I’ve actually been working on this off and on for about a year now.
There’s a website called CreativeLive.com. They offer all sorts of online classes ranging from jewelry making, to photography, to podcasting. This weekend, they had a 50% off sale on all classes so I gave myself a few early Christmas gifts… and one of them is a class called “How To Write and Publish an E-Book”.
When I saw that class title, I immediately thought that yes!, I’d really like to turn this writing I’ve been working on into a little e-book. It feels like it’s a great time to hunker down and do a little more writing than usual. Then, maybe I can finally say, “I wrote a book.” #lifegoal
