I searched through to see if anyone else had mentioned this and I don't see it out there. I'm having more and more friends and family email me, text me, call me, PM me on Facebook or even post directly to my wall telling me that I can just cure my type 2 diabetes if I go Vegan, or start ingesting "living essential oils" or take this vitamin or that herb.
Does anyone ever get sick of this, like I am?
How do you deal with these people nicely?
I've written a couple of posts lately to state to them that there is no cure, but that there is management until a cure can be found. Sure, a type 2 can get back into the good blood sugar realm with diet and exercise, but its not Reversing Diabetes or Curing Diabetes... once you have it, you have it. Yeah, I can manage it better and maybe be off medicine for awhile, but I am still a Diabetic. I've posted the facts from several sites; foremost, the ADA. But still, they do not read all they do is tell me I'm close-minded. I read and read and read and research some more on this, because I am a Diabetic. Anyway. I'm just curious how others handle this. I'm trying to be as positive as possible and be courteous and say thanks, but at the same time, I feel the need to educate them a little more so that they understand.
Any advice would be great. :) I appreciate it very much. Even if you just want to share your stories and frustrations about this here, that would be cool too. We all might be able to learn something.
Also, if there is a post out here somewhere that I'm not aware of, and anyone wants to point me to it, that would be great too! :)
