I was just reading an article which made the statement “suffered from diabetes.” I always get angry when I read this kind of wording. I live with diabetes, so far there is no suffering. Maybe in a couple of decades I’ll change my mind if complications set in.
Is it just me, or is anyone else bothered by the suffering description? I feel like the term suffer makes us into victims. I don’t feel like a victim. How would you like the media to describe your life with diabetes?
