My First Diaversary

April 29, 2010

Do you celebrate the day you were diagnosed? I do! And I’m writing about it over at You Can Call Me Saucy today. Saucy just celebrated her 3rd diaversary yesterday and she’s featuring some blog posts from D.O.C. folks about their thoughts on their anniversary. Come on over and let us know what you think!

(Who here thinks we should make special Happy Diaversary balloons?)

    Oooooh balloons?! I LOVE balloons! I love flowers too…and candy…and cards. Gifts of any kind are great really – and accepted 🙂 Thanks again Allison!

    Definitely should be balloons! Maybe even a stuffed animal!

    Great post! I’ll be celebrating my 2nd diaversary in July. It is a sad occasion, but, as you say, also an opportunity to celebrate your health and all the hard work you’ve put in. I think I’ll make a trip up to my local gluten-free bakery (I have celiac too) for a diaversary cake! (maybe I should have them write “Happy Diaversary in icing! ;-))

      That would be awesome! It was ACT1 Diabetes founder Katie had her birthday on Tuesday and we bought her gluten-free cupcakes. They were pretty good! 🙂

    For the Dia-versary, I send you: I flower-decorated vial of test strips. Cuz you’re that special.

      Well, my diaversary is in January… this post was just for Saucy’s diaversary. But thanks for the thought!

    As you well know, I celebrate my Diaversary loud and proud loud and write about it every year. I say bring on the cupcakes, flowers, balloons- whatever makes you happy!

    Loud and proud sounds aweesome, K2 🙂 And totally – balloons sound great. As do flora test strip vials 🙂 My diaversary falls around Easter. Actually when I was diagnosed in ’96 it was the Thursday of Easter. I had a box of easter eggs and couldn’t eat them. Funny looking back on that.

    I think you should take the initiative of making those balloons or talk to someone who designs them? However that works in the balloon industry, haha! 🙂
