I have a co-worker who is T2 and she doesn’t follow or even attempt to follow her diabetes routine! She drives me up the wall…lol I know I shouldn’t force people to follow any routine but come on…when will people learn!!! I know some people are stuck in their ways but come on you have a disease that you can manage if you choose too! I told her that she is more act risk for cardio disease, stroke, rheinopathy and neuropathy to name a few… she said she knew…I watched her take 2 Olive Garden Breadsticks (50 plus carbs) and I told her how many carbs she was eating…Do you know what she said to me…She said I am not using insulin, I told her I am not on insulin because I don’t take care of myself; her comment ticked me off!
People need to be educated on Diabetes!..what ashame. I told her when she is sitting at home 5 years down the line suffering from self inflicked wounds (diabetes complications), she will think about the convo we had and she’ll say “I wish I would’ve listened”. I’ll pray for her but that’s about all I can do.
I’ve come to the conclusion, I am finished trying to help her!!! I guess you can’t help everyone
