We have felt strange about it too, every year. I have found writing about it helps.
We haven'e always the same way about diagnosis anniversaries. It is like our diabetes has varied. At first we were still a little raw and then shortly after that first diaversary we got a second diagnosis and it was as raw as the first. By now we are so far into the "new normal" that it is fairly close to simply normal.
Still Halloween is our day and Halloween brings out different responses in type 1 families. Some don't trick or treat, some fret about it, some buy back candy and then there is us. We eat the stuff. On nurses orders.
So anyway in honor of Connor getting sprung from CHOP our three words are, "Bolus for Candy."
We had great support at that first diagnosis. Here is a link to the story of Connor's diagnosis and the great care we received from our nurse at CHOP. She is the one who sprung him a day early so he could trick or treat and gave him instructions to eat the candy (as part of his meal plan.)
