|Abby with her friends!|
My prom was in 2008 the year before I was diagnosed with type 1. So, prom was like any other thing, it didn't matter what I ate or when I ate, what I did or what I didn't do - I was just an average teenager going to prom. However, the year I was diagnosed with type 1, 2009, I went to prom with a boy I was dating who was a year younger than me (and yes, there is a blog about this way back) but, that prom was much different from my first prom. I remember being so annoyed that the dinner was unexpected, served one course at a time, I had no idea what I was going to do. However, that prom ended up being much more fun, I remember than my original - I danced a lot more.
Either way, to make me feel even older I was the photographer at my sister's prom and all of her friends and even people I used to BABYSIT were coming to get their picture taken - all dolled up. It was a reminder that I am not that young anymore - well I am young, but time flies I guess is a better way of putting it.
