At work I'm currently training someone who has taken interest in me having diabetes. She asks what I am doing all the time,etc. which doesn't bother me but then she tries to tell me what to do to make my diabetes better...
One of my pet peeves is when people who don't have diabetes or a close family member who does and they try to tell me how to manage my diabetes.
Don't get me wrong I am not bothered by someone who asked if I can eat something or not. It's more when people ask and then go on to tell me anyway what I should eat or that I should special order food from America to be shipped to me.
Hence my question...
Do you type 1's out there not eat sugar? Are you super strict with your diet? I'm just curious. My Dr.'s have always said I can eat what I want as long as I cover it. I don't over do it, but I like to have one sweet thing per day to get it out of my system:).
Tell me what you think though...I'm just curious how strict you all are.
