I can remember sitting in church on Sunday with the pastor speaking about the Water of Life. All I could think about was my own dry mouth and thirst. A day before I found out I had diabetes I went to Knott's Berry Farm in California where I was living at the time. I bought three peppermint sticks and ate all three of them. The next day I had a doctor appointment to find out the reason for my thirst and itching. I will always remember when I was first told that I had diabetes. I was 17 years old.

I was admitted to a hospital and stayed for three days. I didn't mind being in the hospital. I liked being waited on. Then I was sent home with very little training or education on diabetes. When I got home I was very nervous and scared trying to give myself insulin shots. I thought to myself I am not going to be able to do this. I went back to the doctor and told him I just couldn't give myself shots. Now, I really liked this doctor. He was very kind, plus young and good looking. So he said we would just try insulin pills.

That worked for a few years. I was pretty good at being careful about what I ate. Then I started a friendship with twin girls from my church. They were my age and both were diabetics on insulin shots. For some reason they ate everything I was supposed to stay away from. So guess what. I thought if they can eat everything they wanted, so could I. My biggest downfall was eating apple fritters. They were sweet, warm, and greasy and oh so good. Boy did I ever love them. I don't touch them now.
