I'm just wondering if anyone else thinks that having T1 affects how we think and observe others.
I just thought about this today when one of my friends was just drinking some water during class. I noticed him taking quite a big drink, and then thought back and realized that just in the last week or so he's been bringing a big water bottle with him to class (I have three classes with him, and he brings it to all of them). This got me thinking about how thirsty I was before I was diagnosed, and, naturally, it made me think, "What if he has diabetes?"
I remembered another time when I was about 10 or 11 years old, a year or two after my diagnosis (I'm 16 now), when one of my other friends began using the bathroom a lot, and I had similar thoughts.
I know that nothing was wrong with my friend several years ago and there is probably nothing wrong with my other friend today, but things like that occasionally just make me wonder...
So, I'm just wondering, am I the only one who has these thoughts, or do you have similar notions?
