“True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself.” ~Honore de BalzacDiabetes is eternal. Diabetes is infinite. And I suppose Diabetes is always like itself . . . because it sure is different from anything else.
In any case, my “true love” and I are celebrating our 31st anniversary one day this month - although in all honestly, I’ve been saying we’ve been together for 31 years since about September or so. Maybe that’s because it just seems like diabetes has been with me for-freaking-ever!! In any case, we may have officially passed our big day last week. Or maybe it is next week. Or possibly yesterday or tomorrow. As I’ve said before, the unfortunate fact is that I don’t know exactly when my Diaversary is, but we know I was diagnosed in 1979 and we think it was in December. I usually pick December 15th to “celebrate” because it is smack in the middle of the month. This year I suppose I need to push the party back a bit because Pete has an important meeting today and I’d hate to leave my REAL true love out of the celebration.
So tell me, what is a suitable 31st Diaversary gift for my so-called true love to get me? Perhaps good health after 31 years with my life partner is the best gift I could have asked for!
