I am tremendously grateful that diabetes, including type 1 diabetes, has received so much attention and that diabetes care continues to improve. And I am sincerely grateful that having diabetes does not prevent me from participating in activities that bring me joy. I am blessed in many, many ways, and know things could be much worse.
But sometimes, I just ache inside and impatiently cry out for a cure. When I was diagnosed in 1988, I was told, "5, 10 years at the most." I try to assume it will not happen in my lifetime, so I am not disappointed. But sometimes it seems so tantalizingly close.
Cure it now! Please.
