Every day I thank my lucky stars for the journey. My story now includes type 1 diabetes, and although it’s extremely tough, it also has brought so many wonderful people into my life. I now know how precious time is, and can truly enjoy all that life has to offer. It’s been almost a blessing in disguise.
My heart goes out to all the people out there who seem to get upset at every comment and go on the attack every time someone puts up a joke/incorrect information about diabetes. There are many misconceptions about MANY things. You have NEVER said something insensitive or inappropriate?
These diabetics do no service to themselves or the world by being hateful and aggressive in their responses.
What a terrible way to live, thinking people are shaming you all the time. It’s not a personal attack.
I hope these people can get to a place of peace and can educate with sincerity. Be respectful and honest.
I was there once, but am so happy I’m not anymore.
