Just a girl struggling to remain smiling throughout life with type-1 diabetes. :)
This is why we need to educate everyone! It makes me so upset that people still think this way!! I am sorry you had to deal with this, hopefully you taught them a very valuable lesson :)
Bring on the glorious pancreas jolting day!! :D
Good for you for not letting the sugar hit the fan! ;) It's hard when those who you feel should know better hit you with something like that!My mil is T2 and she still tries to offer fixes for Bean (T1) that have worked for her...yeah, great, thanks! ;)And I am totally with you on the willing to go bankrupt to keep Bean from ever having to prick her finger again...sign me up as soon as there's a sign up sheet!!
I'm not in the mood either! I just tested and am at 238...I swear my blood sugar has not been below 200 today--so frustrating! Sometimes people just won't get it even when they have the best intentions...but at least you're trying (and nice that your hubby speaks up, too!). Also, the "tragic life" is what would hit me the hardest..! It just goes back to more people needing to be educated about type 1.
This post really kind of irritated me. It was just difficult to read. I'm really glad your hubby spoke up :)
Good job to you and hubby for speaking up, especially in a potentially-awkward and sensitive situation involving in-laws. My mother in law is not so nice and assumes that her Type 2 gives her all the wisdom about everything in the D-World, so it's always a fun time trying to navigate those with a straight face and low blood pressure. Glad you got some awareness out there, though it's sad that sometimes it makes no difference.
I wanted to thank you for always leaving such kind comments over my way....I've been a little disconnected from the DOC lately, but I've really appreciated them :)NOW....ummmmm...........THEY HAVE CURED MICE!!! So go get some Mickey ears and let's do a jig. Or, better yet, drink this juice because it's sure to do the trick. But seriously, if you just stand on your head while balancing a bowling ball between your ankles and chanting "I AM CURED" loud enough, it works every time.Hi Five to the hubs...and good for your for coming out of your shell to share your story with the world!
I can totally see why that made you angry - I would have been exactly the same!When I was 14, a man followed me out of the pharmacy when I'd been collecting my insulin (he had obviously been being nosey!) and stopped me on the street to try and tell me that it has been proven that drinking a daily cocktail of carrot juice mixed with ginger and other stuff would cure my diabetes. Even when I repeatedly told him I was a type 1 diabetic he was adamant that he was right. SO FRUSTRATING!Meagan, I love reading your posts. Thank you for your consistent honesty and down to earth-ness!
