not just for type 1 (that one being my personal favorite, haha) but in general.
unfortunately, i have yet to find one that has been cured. some say smallpox, however, most diseases have been eradicated by vaccine, not technically cured once one has 'contracted' it. this is why i'm starting to think 'they' (the great researchers we are all depending on) have invested so much in the idea of preventing type 1's onset in the first place through vaccine.
could you imagine that, though? how many vaccines are we gonna subject our kids to? i think in some people's minds, it is the only way, since (i theorize) we've never actually found a cure for anything.
i am grateful our disease is manageable, though. while letting it go would have led to me to a slow and painful death, many diseases that become 'managed' (i.e., the aftereffects of severe scarlet fever) have long-term results that effect one for life in a way that is unmanageable. that really breaks my heart.
so we watch and wait, but birdy's not holding her breath. now i'm just waiting for my damn ankle to heal so can run again!
