It's really easy for people to get confused about things that are major to us but minor to them. For example, I've been asked on several occasions by people if I can have _________ because of my diabetes. To confuse them even further, there are foods that I'm allergic to, such as peanut butter. So they don't know whether I'm refusing a food because of my diabetes, allergies, or plain old individual preference! I would be just as confused if I didn't have diabetes, I suppose. I'm fortunate to have never run up against a know-it-all, yet.
