Days since . .

Wow . . . Kerri's recent post inspired me to figure out how many days it's been since I've been diagnosed. So I was curious and I Googled and found this website and . . . just . . . well . . . holy crap!

Duration calculation results:

From and including: Wednesday, July 3, 1991
To and including: Monday, June 29, 2009

It is 6572 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

Or 17 years, 11 months, 27 days including the end date

Alternative time units

6572 days can be converted to one of these units:
  • 567,820,800 seconds
  • 9,463,680 minutes
  • 157,728 hours
  • 938 weeks (rounded down)
It's funny. I know that I've have diabetes forever. I mean, I don't really remember what it's like not to have it, not to think about food as this complicated thing, to eat without worry, to not have life disrupted with lows, highs and whatever else. But when you see those numbers . . . well, they just seem so high. It's just a different perspective. Crazy.

I don't even wanna think about how many shots I've had or how many times I've pricked my finger. Those numbers would be just insane. Let's just stop while we're talking about numbers I can actually wrap my head around, shall we? :-)

Mathematically yours,

PS: Happy, happy birthday to my wonderful husband!! As of today he's given me 4,019 days of happiness. Cheers to the best 29-year-old husband I know!
