I don’t believe that. I am quite positive that you’re describing what you think you’ve seen, as interpreted through your own lenses. Your comments frequently come across as rude, condescending, and dismissive, even when (barely) couched in language that attempts to approximate normal, polite human discourse. I don’t flatter myself that I can change your outlook with an exchange in an internet forum, but I’ll share two things with you that it’s possible could be useful to you:
You frequently come across as unpleasant and dismissive of others on this forum;
It’s going to be OK: having Type 1 isn’t the end of the world, even if it can feel lonely at times (especially if you have nothing but contempt for other Type 1s that you’ve met).
How’s that for “mincing?” I admit, given the nature of digital discourse, that it’s likely to be ineffectual. And I’ll tell you now that I’m not about to apologize Try to have a good day, my friend, because you desperately need some good stuff in your life. Try meeting some other PWDs, leave the judgmental attitude at home for the day, and see how that feels! You could really do that right here, in these forums, with a little effort. It will be even more effective if you do it face to face.
I can absolutely promise you that if you reach out to others with our shared disease, you’ll meet amazing, strong, beautiful people who are absolutely not letting their illness hold them back from living full, effective lives. Many of us have dedicated our lives to service to others. Open your eyes (and maybe your heart), and you’ll recognize how amazing we all are for doing the best we can with what we have to work with. And if you keep your eyes and heart open, you might also find that you are amazing too.
