This past year I have met some great people and have made some good friends. I isolated myself from all my friends when I was first diagnosed with T1D, so except for my 2best friends I don't talk to anyone who knew me before I had T1D. It was just to painful and embarrasing to continue being friends with them because I felt so weak.
Anyway, I am so thankful that I have made new friends who are interested in the same things I am and they are fun to be with. However, they don't know I have T1D and I don't want to tell them (I am still very uncomfortable with my disease). The thing is that they all love to cook and try new types of food, which is great but I usually can't eat ANY OF IT, unless I want to be in a constant food coma, lol. I just avoid the food as much as possible but its starting to make me depressed. I just tell them I am watching my weight because they are all thin and I am the biggest one among them and they tell me that I look good and not to worry. I don't want to tell them I have T1D cause then they will constantly apologize for eating everything I can't and give me those side pitty glances that I HATE.
Do you guys have any advice? Should I eat the food but be on a high insulin dose? I really don't want to gain anymore weight. I don't want to stop hanging out with them, I've been alone because of my T1D for so long and I don't want to go through that again. What do you guys do when you go out with your non-T1D friends? I don't have any T1D friends or any family members that have T1D...
