Man has this topic has been beaten to death.
Now for all you Type 2's getting all butt hurt and whining about Type 1's wanting a higher degree of separation from you and your disease, consider this...
Not all Asian people are Chinese. Not all Hispanic people are Mexican. Unfortunately our society views the world with blatant ignorance, and that's the way T1's are viewed...its simply wrong.
It's like being from Japan, but being called "Kinda-Chinese" or "Type B Chinese." It sounds so ridiculous, I'm actually offending myself as I type it.
Anyway, this is about culture. Type 1's and Type 2's have a different culture about how and why they take care of themselves. You don't have to believe me, but ask yourself this...if Type 2's outnumber Type 1's by millions in society, then why do Type 1's seem to outnumber Type 2's by so much on tudiabetes.com?
Answer: It's culture.
We as Type 1's have a right to desire a better understanding of our culture in society...and for the record, diabetes is not just diabetes...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that.
