We have all heard the saying? Don’t judge someone till you have walked a mile in their shoes. The same can be said about diabetic types, don’t judge a type until you have lived their D.
We all believe that believe that no one can understand but another D, another T1, another T2. But what about the T3’s or to be more precise a T3 parent who can understand what it is like for them, who can walk in their shoes. Don’t they make every step that their child makes, don’t they live the D life thru their children.
They don’t understand because they are not Type whatever. It’s been said, rarely out in the open but it is said or implied. The other day I heard it said about a T3 and that’s what has brought this Rant on.
I’m a T2 and I will concede that I can’t fully understand what it’s like to be T1 or T3 or any other type because I cannot walk in those shoes. None of us can walk in another type’s shoes but we can respect and not diminish them. I refuse to put myself on a pedestal because I only know the feel of the shoes that I wear.
OK Rant is over now, Thanks for hearing me out.
