Ok, so for the last 39 years I have always considered myself a diabetic.
I guess I have been wrong, according to what I have been reading I am a PWD (person with diabetes).
So . . .
Are people with Epilepsy a PWE ?
Is someone with cancer a PWC ?
Are people with arthitis or asthma or Alzheimers a PWA ?
Are people with Osteoporosis a PWO ?
So where does this PWD stuff come from ?
Am I now politcally incorrect for calling myself a diabetic ? or worse than that; Am I old-fashioned ???
I have a feeling someone someplace just didn't like the word "diabetic" so they felt obligated to come up with something else.
Oh well, to me I will always be a diabetic; life goes on.
