Journal Entry: One Month Before Diagnosis



I have written in a diary or journal since age 9.  I dusted the cover of my first diary the other day and found an entry for October 4th, 1994, exactly one month before I would end up in the hospital with type 1 diabetes at age 11.

Today I’m thinking about Halloween and because it makes me think of costumes, it also makes me think about what I want to do when I grow up.  I think maybe I want to go to Egypt and be an archaeologist.  Or maybe an ice skater.  Or a professional soccer player.  Then again, I really like helping people so maybe I’ll grow up to be a doctor or teacher.  I don’t know.  All I know is I like to help people, especially diabetics like Ana. 

I wonder if God remembers our deal?  I hope he knows I’m serious about having Him give me diabetes as long as he takes it away from Ana.  She is only 3, I’m 11, and a good sister should take the hardship away from her little sister right?  Anyway, I keep praying my plan will go according to plan.  Talk to ya next time, Diary.

    Once more, you make me cry. I still remember when you told me that now you could help me with Ana’s diabetes and that it was better you have it than Alejandro [brother] (you said he would die without candy)
