Do you ever get really frustrated by some of the dumb things that people say? I sure do. Having diabetes is bad enough, but when people say stupid things out of ignorance, it makes it even more frustrating. But even with the bad, there is always good too. Some of the things people say are downright funny too! I'm often amazed by some of the comments I get and I'm curious about other people's experiences. Please post some of the comments you have received.
THIS WAS FROM MY MOM!!
"You just need to exercise more and eat better then you can get off all that stuff (referring to my insulin, insulin pump, and CGM."
**I might note that I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a year ago. Without insulin, I will die. She still doesn't get that. Because I was diagnosed as an adult, she thinks my diabetes can be controlled with diet and exercise. SO FRUSTRATING!
