I have had it for 37 years myself. But this is a good group if your looking for support. I always try to stay in the positive mode myself and it has worked good for me so far. I do wish you the best with this rotten battle. :)
I was diagnosed in 1966...50 years coming up soon. In 2012 I was the recipient of a kidney and a pancreas transplant. I've had a few problems now and then...hospitalizations for UTI, asthma/pneumonia/shingles...I also have an excellent medical support group starting with my Primary Care office next door to my house (literally). Wishing you both the best...my motto is: Knowledge is power...Attitude is everything...a happy heart is good medicine.
