I guess I just need to vent a little. There is one thing that makes me angry when I talk with people about me being a diabetic. After some conversations that I have had in the many years of being a diabetic I hate it when people say "oh, he has diabetes so bad that he has an insulin pump attached to him all the time". I try to explain that I choose to wear the pump for better control and to make my busy daily schedule a little easier. Another reason I choose to wear the pump is because of my active life style that I live. I do not wear it because I have diabetes bad, or because I have sugar (don't you love that when people say that you have sugar, lol) I am not saying that diabetes is not bad. But the way I look at it is it's in your hands! You can choose to make your future bad by not taking control of your diabetes or take care of it and have a better future! Im not saying I have been in perfect control all 33 years of being a diabetic, I just am thankfull that I woke up one day and started to take control. Sorry if I offended any one, I just don't like it when people say that I have very bad diabetes because I wear a pump!
