On the Juvenation.org discussion forums, Ana asked "How has having Type I Diabetes Improved your Life?" i answered the question this way:
Dealing with diabetes has helped to make our family stronger. There are scary statistics out there that indicate that many marriages split up soon after a diagnosis is made.
Though undocumented, I think the opposite is also true.
Having the challenge of diabetes introduced into our lives has underscored the commitment my wife and I have in each other and the passion that we share for our children. It has "proved" our love and provided us a common cause to rally around.
