So frustrated. I live with Type 1 all the rest of the year just fine. Yet somehow, during the holidays the well-intentioned, but aggravating behavior escalates.
I've celebrated Christmas with a Adkin's yogurt and some seafood salad before because too many people were utterly terrified that I'd eat something "bad" and would chase me away from the food every time. That time, I wound up leaving the party to go eat before I went low.
Wish they'd give me a little credit... I manage the rest of the year. Let me worry about that.
Newest headache came when I made the mistake of mentioning I had started looking into an insulin pump. A friend immediately says "I know a guy with one of those. You know they can be hacked via bluetooth?"
I'd love to be able to celebrate Christmas like a normal person... or at least being given credit for being a 32 year old woman who lives just fine the rest of the year
Sorry, just venting
