JUST VENTING about things that I find frustrating...some things are laughable and some things are not.
Ever have anyone to announce your medical condition to a stranger while you are standing there and can speak for yourself? AND you do not want it told?
Ever have anyone try to be your food police? If you eat an apple it might cause great harm or (for the sake of life) a piece of candy (even if you are hypo)?
Ever have just life events (such as stress and for females, your cycle) demand a little more insulin than normal?
Ever feel like you need to educate everyone about hypoglycemic events in the case you may have unclear communication so they know you are not stupid?
So far I have had to get a medical letter submitted to my employer because one day I did not feel it was safe for me to climb a 15 ft. ladder. I had to explain why sometimes I may be ok and sometimes I may not. I was then told to explain why I did not state this at the time of hire.
How things are different for diabetics does get frustrating and there are few who can identify except those with the condition.
Let us VENT together and we can feel better for doing so.
