I just finished posting about my new A1C and all while I was writing I kept feeling uncomfortable about saying what I wanted to say, and I’d like to hear other people’s thoughts on this topic.
What happened is that my new A1C is higher than I want it to be, and that scares me – BUT – at the same time I don’t want to seem like a big baby, or even insensitive, fretting and complaining about a number that may seem great to people who are struggling with much higher numbers.
There’s also the T1 vs. T2 thing, which I was not really aware of until I joined this site. I censor my comments a lot because I don’t want to offend T1’s who seem to resent T2’s because we “have it easy,” saying things like, “I’d gladly trade my lows and insulin pump for your Metformin and jog around the block.” (Realizing of course that not all T1’s think that!)
My feeling is that we’re all here for the same reason – to share support and hopefully also share good information about how to manage our condition. But I’m still a little afraid of stepping on people’s toes.
Anyone else ever feel that way?
