Sad thing is that I've had comments like that from people with relatives that have diabetes. And when I explain things that yes, my A1C's are in 'normal' ranges but still have diabetes and have to keep an eye on what I can/cannot do I get those 'headlight in the eyes' look. Light's on but nobody home time.
And when trying to explain why I have to go every three months to see a podiatrist and that I have nerve damage they can't understand that I can have that in the feet that they thought always in the legs. Or they can't understand why I can eat things that they thought a diabetic shouldn't. Don't understand that I'm able to do so in moderations and not so often as I would like to. Get that 'oh, you can't have this can you?'
Or the 'how many calories are you eating?' Beats me. I have enough counting carbs, sodium, sugars and what have you. Don't have time for calories too. Then I smile and walk off as they try to figure that one out. Cruel maybe but hey what the hell. Besides it's true.
But there's so much misinformation out there that it's not even funny. Stuff that has been there for years and people should have had that cleared up in minds years ago but still there and people believing it for truth.
And then we have the 'food cops'. Bad enough we have at home but then you have to put up with on the outside as well. Sometimes makes you want to grab a sign and wear it saying, " I know what I'm doing, leave me be."
