Ok, this may be a goofy question but I never used to do this before but now that I have D (two months for me) I noticed I do this more.
Now when I am out in stores I look at other people and wonder who else might have Diabetes - obviously you can not tell from looking at people (unless you see a pump or monitor) or even what other health problems others might have?
I never used to do this before unless I saw someone who obviously looked sick but now that it has touched me on a personal level esp right at the beginning I would go food shopping and look around at the other people in the store thinking they all were super healthy and I was the only one who wasn't. But now I think that can't be true and often wonder out of all the other people shopping in the store - not just food shopping but I was thinking that at Walmart yesterday too - that there is no way I am the only one in the store.
Or I see the food people buy when I am in the cashier line too and I think "Oh they must not have D if they can eat that!" Not judging these other people at all but just noticing how prevailent D becomes in your mind when you have it - even when you are not thinking about it directly, it becomes part of your thought patterns in a way - just kind of pops up as a side thought to other things.
Is it just me or does anyone else do this too? I am sure I am just a crazy girl! :)
