It's amazing how hurtful other people's ignorance can be.
Or the idiots who suggest that it's a punishment from God....because I did not surrender or trusted him enough or whatever! HELLO....it's life...s@@t happens!!
I work in a hospital laboratory (we run the tests that give A1c results and stuff like that). I am a Type 1 in my 20's.
A morbidly obese co-worker commented on my food choices during a holiday potluck. She said, in front of the rest of our staff, that I must want to lose my feet and go blind.
As she ate a Triple Whopper with a piece of pie beside it.
omgosh Red....bet you nearly smacked her!!
Don't about Red but would have taken great effort on my part not to, Even more effort not to use a few four letter words.
Oh my goodness! That's horrible. Who says stuff like that?! There are all kinds out there, that's for sure.
I've experienced a lot of annoying comments but probably the most annoying was a former co-worker. When she found out I have diabetes, she said "Oh, well, I better not sit near you then. You're contagious."
At first I thought she was kidding. She wasn't!
I was in an argument with people I knew through a friend online and four of them kept stating that I was just lazy and didn't want to cure my type one. Another person insisted it was because I ate meat and my parents ate meat, even though I'm a vegetarian. And someone else said it would be cured if I did some research and ate a raw diet.
OMG....what the H is wrong with those people!!!!!
I second that Linda. Although it does sound like a case of stupid to me
Believe me. It gets worse...
You shouldn't have kids because they will be diabetic.
