To all the people who say, "At least you don't have cancer."
A Friends Mother: So what do you want to do when you leave school.
Me: I want to be a teacher or a diabetes educator.
A Friends Mother: Why a diabetes educator?
Me: I have diabetes.
A Friends Mother: Wow that must be hard.
Me: Yeah it is...
A Friends Mother: You know I had a friend whose son got a brain tumour. He recovered, was in remission and the cancer is completely gone. 6 months later her daughter got diabetes and you what my friend said to me? She said it was worse for her daughter living with diabetes then it was for her son getting cancer.
*And that what people don't understand, that diabetes is a life sentence. We don't have the option of remission or definitive answer. There is no cure. We don't have peace of mind. Our battle is never ending.
When people are clearly misinformed about diabetes
This happens far too often
The FMA one still hurts, fuck you for that.
