Ever get good and mad at somebody who doesn't know a thing about "D"? I'd like to read a few dumb statements. I would like to collect them, print them out, and give 'em to those folks.

20 years ago when I was diagnosed with T1, my doc sent me to the usual newbie class to get educated. I swear, as the "teacher" assumed her position at the podium, these were the words she spoke:

I just love reading everyone's answers. I got a new one the other day. Someone who knows me well said "You should eat xxxx. It's high in Omega3s". Ah, what's an Omega3? This person had NO idea what it is. Another comment for the list.

Not going all the way back to see if this has been said already...

Here's a few...relating to type 1, ..."you can't eat that candy, your diabetic"
