"Same. I'd rather them say that they're sorry, and not tell me what to do. I suppose i'll just learn to deal with it though. Won't ever change it being annoying though. My friend's whole family is diabetic, except for my…"

"I hate it when people feel sorry for me too, but I understand why they feel that way, It's easy to feel sorry for someone when they're inflicted with something you don't have or know nothing about, I suppose, regardless of how bad it…"

"What a wonderful code, Stuart. :D And thank you. No, I don't think she was in trouble, but I suppose it's none of my business anyways to see that she gets in trouble or not. Plus, I've graduated since then and don't have to see…"

"My sister has that same behavior but has MS instead of Diabetes. It's the personality, not the disease. And I agree, do everything you can not to get paired with her. You have your head on straight and are doing great!"

"I think what you said to everyone was perfect. I didn't know any other diabetics in high school, so I can't really symmpathize. I would be very frustrated, because people like that make others think we are not capable of holding down a…"

"You mean I shouldn't be critized for having diabetes and working it like a cotton gin? That girl knows that no one understands the disease so she can say whatever she wants. People treat her like she's breakable because she puts the story…"

"I have the same opinion as Carb101. Take away the diabetes and she would use something else to create drama and get attention. She's got deeper problems than diabetes. 1. I haven't known any diabetics who act that way, but I've…"

"I know a few people like that too. In high school, there was a girl who had it since she was around 9 years old. She would sit out during gym classes, complain of phantom stomach aches that occured when she mostly didnt want to participate in…"

carb101 replied to Zom. B.'s discussion 'Diabetics that make the rest of us look bad..'
"My first thought: Take away her diabetes, and now she's obnoxious and spoiled because her parents don't love her, or because she had some trauma when she was young, or because her nail polish color isn't right. Diabetes provides an…"

"Honey, she is a "drama queen": Love her from a distance. Be there to help her if she really needs your help ( needs glucose Tabs/ treatment for a low, is going into DKA). Do not coddle her..That is enabling and will only lead her, as Jest…"

Jest replied to Zom. B.'s discussion 'Diabetics that make the rest of us look bad..'
"She sounds like someone who is very dramatic. She has probably been coddled by family and friends since her diagnosis. Unfortunately, for as much of a "pain" she is to have around you and for you to watch as she uses her diabetes for…"
