Life is good!

Welcome and good to hear of your really good luck. Tell us more when/if you feel like it. We always like to hear stories of good news. 40 years is a long time and I'll bet you can share a lot of history with us!

Thank you! I guess my theory of chronic illnesses is. . .better diabetes than anything else! Good food, good physical activity (swimming, walking, biking, yoga, all come to mind!), and a happy world view make this fun, even when it seems to big to deal with!

I don't view this as a chronic illness either. I have both forms of arthritis in my spine and they are, but this is controllable so I view it differently. I only wish they were controllable!

Hello Chris, welcome! Yoy obviously have good control. Good for you! I have good control, after 67 years with type 1. If we take good care of ourselves, we can have long, healthy lives.
