i know and have seen that the term/word "ignorant" is freely applied to "normals, doctors" and others
who arent us. but does this not go both ways also? i have had been told by other ds that things i have gone through in almost 40 yrs of type 1 could not be possible. that living with high a1cs and bg i must surely have complications by now . according to the "science" guys of course. im sorry i was nt around when the real everyday life was replaced by the written word. and a study. and a report saying i must not have a leg by now. so i must be a story teller.
though a long time diabetic it really is only recently that i have been brought into the new century. no basil bolus routine. no lantus and fast acting novolog. and no counting carbs. when i finally returned to the "big city" i had a a1c of 11. but im feeling much better now! lol
needless to say i was offended by this. should i have been? should i change my life story because i dont fit the last study? who should i believe. myself or the people giving me the report word by word? normal folks are not the only ones who have a high degree of ignorance.
