Hey. You have all been fantstic at giving me comic situations - keep them coming.
Another question for you all now.
What misconceptions do you find with regards to your diabetes. Which annoy you the most and have any caused you problems?
For those that haven’t seen the other post, I am working on a story line of 6-8 10 minute episodes of a light hearted drama/comedy program about a group of people connected by their type one diabetes. This will be filmed Summer 2009 if all goes to plan, and will then be distributed on the net.
Thanks again guys. I have started working on the script now, so this is your chance to have yor say. Thanks again everyone.
Yeah, I have been told a hundred times I don’t look fat enough to be a diabetic. I have also been told that eating cinnamon will cure me. That I should eat sweet potatoes instead of white, like I wouldn’t have to take a shot if I did. My high school thought I was a drunk, in school no less because of a few hypoglycemic episodes witnessed there. Pharmacies and medical supply companies on the phone ask why I don’t have Medicare (do I sound 65?) A couple times I have squeezed my fingertip after lancing and the last hole has blown spraying everywhere in a fine mist.
