At multiple points in the life of a type 1 diabetic, annoying individuals will try their darndest to control the diet(really, not knowing anything at all about diabetes).
I do not respond well to these occurances.
“But the doctor says you shouldn’t eat that! It’s evil, it has sugar!”
Sometimes I ignore them and eat twice as much just to show them I don’t care a flip what they think. (aka “Watch Me, I’ll do as I please”) Sometimes I attempt to explain, to no avail. Sometimes I just leave it alone entirely, pissed (like right now) off at the entire world and food Nazi’s in particular.(and eat that sugar free jello they made)
And other times(aka last night), I wait till everyone has gone to bed and then proceed to make a refridgerator pit stop and gorge myself senseless on the cake.
This is why there are so many “non-compliant” D’s in the world. I get so angry with people dictating my diet that I do stupid things, things I don’t usually do. Just when I get mad at non-D’s. My MIL is a sweet person but after just 4 days I am completely going off my rocker and there’s two more days here. I can completely understand the seemingly blase’ diabetic who doesn’t seem to give a rip, eats whatever/whenever they want, don’ t test, take meds right or ever go to the doctor. Because I could just as easily be that person if I lived with the right people.
Word’s can’t express the sensitivity of that subject, most other D-topics I can handle politely but the food control issue sends me off the deep end.
I HATE IT.
(there it is, I feel slightly better now)
