Apparently Not Everyone In the Diabetic Community Understands...

I wrote an article for Diabetes Health recently titled "Yes, I Can Eat That" about the discrimination I face about dietary choices.  Apparently not everyone in the diabetic community understands that our team mascot includes cupcakes because...WE CAN EAT THEM!  I received some comments that require that I develop a thicker skin.  Some actually suggested that I shouldn't eat "toxic" food and that injecting more insulin was improper, some suggested that I should hide my diabetes from others, and some, were absolutely wonderful.  Please see the link below for the article and comments.
