DIAVERSARY:  day of diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes

MY DIAVERSARY:  Monday, 25 January 1965, 53 years ago.  Diagnosed in office of my pediatrician, Dr. Maxwell Stillerman, in his home office on Polo Road in Great Neck, NY.  I hadn’t felt well enough to go to school … and in his study, he told my mother that I had diabetes mellitus, at 5:30pm.  I remember it like it was yesterday!!!  Here’s the house where I received the news.

My life from that moment forward changed!

I was told I wouldn’t live to the age of 40.  Hah, I did!!!

Very blessed and filled with gratitude!!!
