    Got in trouble for drinking too much water & playing with my Aunt's new fridge (ice & water in the door) then on way home I drank the whole thermos by myself in less than a hour (it was 1 gallon)

    My parents finally took me our family doctor once the Christmas/New Year holidays were over.

    Decision Point

    Since my younger brother had been T1D for 9 years already there was no hurry to get my diagnosis.
