Too many patients feel guilty about how their Type 1 diabetes is affecting them, and too many doctors, family, and friends encourage it.
If you only read one article about having diabetes today/this week/this month, make it this one. Then print out about a hundred copies and give them to your friends, family, workmates and above all, your endo and/or nurse. If you ever feel that you are failing as a diabetic, read this, and if anyone ever makes you feel like you are failing, give them this to read. You are awesome and tough for doing what you do, and remember that you’re a diabadass, both type 1 and type 2, no matter what anyone else says ;)
