I thought so just with some of the reactions I've already had. I just finished school in January, so still wet behind the ears so to speak.

The same ignorance and predjudices exists inside the medical world as they do outside of it. I would never mention my diabetes in an interview. I find people here still don't understand the difference between type one or type two diabetes. I find people asking me the same questions as they would in a nonmedical setting. I find myself educating folks about diabetes just as much. If I see a pump on a patient or on a coworker I show them mine. But it's so rare.

I'm wondering how the medical community views are diabetes. Do they view us like the "normal" non-medical population? By this I mean do they still have all the reservations, etc. towards diabetics. How has it been to work with others in the medical community and how do you count your diabetes care as experience when going for interviews, etc.?

Be prepared to talk about complications a lot... use the DOC for support when/if it gets overwhelming.

Hi Brianna and welcome. I am new too and am hoping that something happens on this list. I am not good at starting forum discussions

I just recently graduated as a medical assistant. I'm waiting for my certification test in May. I've been type 1 for almost 17 yrs. now.

Good morning! I am a pharmacist with Type 2 diabetes for many years. Everyday it is a struggle, so I joined this forum. Hopefully I'll make contact with others in my boat.
