This is, in one sense, a very inappropriate issue but I’d like to bring it up anyway. I apologize upfront to anyone I may offend.
At times, when we come out of the closet as a diabetic or whine about inconveniences and difficulties of being diabetic, people will be like, “Oh, at least you don’t have cancer.”
Well, some time back I attended a DO IT program by Joslin and one participant is a breast cancer survivor. She says diabetes is worse than cancer. At least there’s a chance cancer can go in remission. Diabetes never goes in remission and is something a diabetic has to think about all the time.
I am sure there are others here who are courageously battling cancer or have vanquished it. What are your thoughts about diabetes versus cancer? Is one worse than the other?
