Is anyone else watching the episode tonight about LaRhonda and getting more and more peeved every time Chris says ‘I don’t want you to think of your mother as diabetic’ or ‘I don’t want you to think of her that way’ to LaRhonda?
It’s irritating to me. First, they never said if her mom had Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. It could be either, as her mom used insulin.
If it was Type 2, all Chris is doing is sending the message that having Type 2 is your own fault and is shameful.
If it was Type 1, all Chris is doing is sending the message that because Type 1s use insulin, we must also be ‘unhealthy’ and that too is shameful.
I’m soooooo mad.
Maybe I’m the only one?
I went to his website and got his email address and sent him a somewhat strongly worded email expressing my disgust, and informing him about the many causes of Type 2 diabetes, and about the stereotypes that all diabetics have to endure - and how he’s not helping things at all.
