i guess i'm saying this because sometimes it really gets to me how random people i talk to now are like, "um, how did you walk around not knowing you were diabetic?!"
that's when i take a deep breath, smile at them and begin what i now call:
"The Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Discussion."
( i know all you type 1's are laughing right now...)
as irritating and assumptive as it is to deal with it, i like that i get to be just one more person out there advocating for education, better food for all of us, better treatment for people that just feel...misunderstood.
but i've also realized something big lately:
you can't be understood 'til you understand.
