Thirst by Khürt WilliamsKhürt Williams (islandinthenet.com)

On or about June 14th I was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus; Type 1 diabetes. The doctors called it sudden onset diabetes. Yep, it sure was sudden.

Twelve years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Through hard work and the support of my wife, family and close friends I found the strength to manage that disease. Because of a recent challenge with another autoimmune disease, my wife commented that I had forgotten how hard it was back them. Perhaps I have. Perhaps that's a good thing. Perhaps in another twelve years, I will be commemorating the "overcoming" of Graves'.
