i don't remember the exact day i was diagnosed either. i only remember being sick before diagnosis on my birthday, and having to take time time off school in the 3rd grade, so i know it was a day in september of '89. i kind of want the anniversary like so many other diabetics... but the day is lost in a medical record somewhere
