I thought it would be nice for everyone to list their Diaversary so that we can celebrate your continued success in managing Diabetes, annually! I’ll start!
If you could please follow the following format it would be great! I want to start annotating these dates so that we can celebrate them together as a community, annually.
If you don’t remember the exact date, just put MONTH and YEAR
Also, if you don’t want to list your real world name, that’s OK! Just re-post your forum name. Feel free to use instead.

Wow! I didn’t realize you were this old, Eric! You were diagnosed 10 months before I was BORN!
Diabetes keeps me young.
Hopefully you can come to the ceremony when I get the 100 year Joslin medal (if you are still alive).

Sounds like a monthly celebration is in order from October - March of each year for you! There is a lady in my company who the corporate office doesn’t know her true start date so she really gets a congratulatory message pertaining to her anniversary twice per year.

Okay, I’ve created a new emoji for all the 007’s out there.
Feel free to use it as necessary.
Wow, you were diagnosed the same month/year that my daughter was born!

My best recollection is that it was January 1972. But that time frame is all a haze now. I think I’ve successfully blocked it out of my mind.
