Why is my hard work not recognized by my non diabetics friends when I eat well when we go out, I never drink alcohol when I go out and when I have good numbers but the second I want the occasional desert they all of a sudden become diabetes experts and all of a sudden I'm a horrible diabetic? Just wondering...... I'm POSITIVE there are D's sharing in my frustration otherwise there wouldn't be books written about it right? LOL
