Sometimes people say stuff to type 1s but I don’t think it’s as often for example when I was diagnosed 2 of my friends came into the hospital and one of them said “I never really thought you were fat but I guess I see it now” that comment hurt so badly because at that point I weighed 48kgs which for someone with my build is very underweight, I sort of know your feelings but probably not as well as I could :p tbh most people don’t know I’m diabetic so they don’t say anything
Yea it annoys me too, they really need to make more of awareness between type 1 and type 2 :)
I was in band today and the diabetic kid that sits next to me just finished checking his blood sugar, and he decided to draw a smiley face on his music using his own blood.
I was 9th of June 2010 :)
Disturb me all you like :) I love hearing from other people, makes me remember that I’m not alone in this
Do you mean this meme?
Let me educate you a little here. Your statement that sugar causes diabetes (any type) is the ignorant one, not mine.
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the pancreas produces little to no insulin. Not preventable, no cure.
Type 2 Diabetes is insulin resistance. IT’S GENETIC. While poor diet and/or lifestyle choices can contribute to the development of type 2, it is not a direct cause. You can eat 20 fucking candy bars a day for 20 years, and IT WILL NOT GIVE YOU DIABETES. ANYBODY can develop Type 2 Diabetes if they have the gene for it - even fit, healthy, athletic people who eat all organic healthy foods. You do not have to be unhealthy to develop it, and living an unhealthy lifestyle will not directly cause your body to develop it.
I have had Type 1 Diabetes for over 10 years - do NOT come into my ask box and anonymously spread your stupid ignorance like the cowardly pussy you apparently are. Don’t you dare try to tell me false nonsense about my disease.
I do thank you, however, for reminding me of that meme. I’m very proud of it, considering it’s one of the few diabetes related memes on the internet that spreads TRUTH about this unforgiving disease. Now I can share it some more.
It’s honestly so stupid isn’t it, we just gotta ignore people like that sometime but it gets hard and you just wanna rip off their heads ;)
