I have had type 1 diabetes for 27 years, and I am glad to say that I am happy and healthy. The trouble I have is that so many people feel the need to give me advice once they know I have "diabetes." Of course, the diabetes they are thinking about is type 2. I have people tell me all the time that I should drink this mixture or take these supplements or exercise this long each day and I will be cured! I even had someone tell me that I should only eat half a banana because I have diabetes. For heaven's sake! I was just wondering how you all deal with the misinformation that is out there about diabetes.
