I guess this is a matter of opinion I put this to diabetics to see if I am rude or not? In an effort to see if people know about the big D I ask this question “Since this is diabetes awareness week what do you know about diabetes?” I get all kinds of answer that have the same meaning always. If the fat people would lose weight the diabetes would go away. Of course this hurts anyone feelings and it no longer makes me mad so I reply “What about the skinny ones, young children or even the athletes that are diabetics?” Well that is when I get a comment like “Wow you are rude amongst other things.” I thing that the TV needs to have commercials that have kids and athletes with diabetes and adults that are diagnosed later in life with LADA or Type 1 and people just need to be educated in grammar school to start off with. In my area they have free class once a month here at hospital for free it is placed in the paper for all to attend and that is all that can be done is to offer the information but it there is a class on it in school one day the masses will have some idea on it and other things can be in the class as that is when kids learn the most. You will find that I am passionate about this idea and I only wish to help people learn the truth about diabetes not just what is thrown out there.
