Do you ever wonder if you hadn't walked into the bar would you have met the love of your life? If you hadn't left the house two minutes early would you have avoided that car crash? Everyone wonders what if? But, as always we have to remind ourselves that life moves along in a crazy way and personally I believe everything happens for a reason.
There is something about spending time with someone who knows exactly what you are going though. A couple weeks ago I went for a walk with my type 1 friend Michelle, and unlike any other time I go for a walk with someone else, we were both pulling out our meters, packing sugar in our pockets and we spent the entire walk talking about diabetes, talking about our diagnosis, funny things that have happened and some tips and tricks to dealing with diabetes.
Life just becomes a little simpler when you can talk to someone who is living with type 1. Even if it is just for an hour, its a little bit of a relief not having to worry about a single thing and knowing that that person is just like you.
