I'm just going to get right into what is on my mind right now, sorry in advance if I don't make sense or jump around. feel free to ask an help.
I don't know how many of you keep up with news about health things or in general, not really a thing to be talked about, but to me it matters. I try and keep myself updated, and I recently had got an email about someone speaking to people, something that just really got me hot, and I don't have the email anymore, I got rid of it out of rage and didn't want to think about it.
The thought was to talk with someone where I work a lot higher up then just my office to maybe get more involved with this now that I'm not running around with doing things, to have people actually know what Dia is and does, everything, I'm still so shocked that people have no clue what it is like not a thing about it, around it, what it takes, and ask over an over questions that I had already answered through the years of knowing a said few, not really close with them anymore, but still get those random texts asking or those crazy, hey did you hear this, uhm, you don't know what you talking about don't try and school me. Now I'm great to sit down and help people understand thing's but most people just don't get it, assume thing's or are just plain rude, and I don't play nice if your going to be rude about it.
I'm always hearing about so many other things, yet Dia is not even scratched. Maybe I'm wrong but that's how I see, an hear it. Now I feel for talking and taking action for others things, but Dia if looking at facts, needs to be put on people minds and agenda's, it's a terrible thing to have people seem to "know" an yet it still sits in the dusty old corner as other things (again not complaining about cures and what not for other things), I am fed up with this, I guess what I want to ask is peoples thought's, help, how or what specific things should I share or forward to whoever to get the work out there other then me just ranting to someone about hey do this, try an help, I don't want to try, I am personally sick of trying, I want to do something.
Found that comment:
“That doesn’t mean we should take care of the person who sits at home, eats poorly, and gets diabetes.”
This was the comment that really got to me, coming from a type one diabetic myself, and knowing type twos. I'm sorry but he had no right to say this, ZERO! It makes my mind scrambled that someone can even have the right or strength to say such a thing. it honestly makes me want to personally go find him sit down and rip into him about this life so many of us live with, and ALL that came with it, NOT by a choice.
Thank you for all those who take the time to read my head thoughts and rant, I just really want things to change and move forward for us a big old happy so strong of a family.
