I dont know the date I was diagnosed. it was 1970 and I was only 8 years old. I didnt realize that one day there would be this thing called the internet and I would be asked all the time when I was dx'd, lol. I know they told me I would have to take shots the rest of my life but at the age of 8 I couldnt see past the next week. But now here it is almost 40 years later and I think I am doing pretty good....no amputations and no blindness.
