Celebrating 4 Years of Life

Today is my 4th Diaversary.

Happy Diaversary to Me!

That’s 4 years of LIVING with type 2 diabetes and congestive heart failure.

Am I really happy to be living with D and CHF?
Well, no.

Do I hate the diseases with a passion?
Hell yes!

Is this day really something to celebrate?
Some folks would say no, but I think it is.
You did see that big, bold living up there, didn’t you?

You see, today I’m celebrating 4 years of being alive.
4 years of surviving when the doctors said I was going to die.

Today I celebrate beating the odds, and putting up a good fight.
I celebrate strength, determination, and better health.
And I celebrate the people in my life because of my diagnosis.

Today, I celebrate 4 years of life.
Here’s hoping for many more.
