Thank You Letter to My Diabetes

I found this thank you letter to diabetes over at DiabetesDaily and I thought it was kind of cute.  https://www.diabetesdaily.com/blog/a-thank-you-letter-to-my-diabetes-348868/

As much as I don't like living with diabetes, I do acknowledge that it isn't all bad.  There are some great things in my life that wouldn't have happened if I didn't have diabetes.  

What are the things you'd like to thank diabetes for?  Care to share your own thank you letter to diabetes with us?

For the most part I count my T2 as a blessing.  Even though I was a healthy eater, exercised regularly and was not overweight, my dx allowed me to tweak my diet i.e. eliminated carbs and sugars.  In return I feel better!  I have more energy!  I sleep better! I don't have that bloated feeling from carbs and I don't really miss the "bad" carbs anymore!
