My award from Joslin is for 50 years. They give medals for 50 and 75 years. On Sept. 15 I will have my 64'th anniversary of my diagnosis. I will receive my 75 year medal, God willing, in 11 more years.

The 50 year certificate.

On the front.

On the back.

I just discovered that site and I have never heard of getting medals for being ill. But no, you got it for controlling the disease not letting it control you. I hope you make it another 11 years. You keep doing whatever you have being doing all these years and share some of your secret. You probably have a good book somewhere in you.

Yep, I have written my book and is going to publish it for me. I hope the book will be for sale on amazon by Feb.

P.S. I got permission to talk about my book in the forums.
