Ok, I think I need to vent. I went to running class this morning and started talking to this guy and the topic turned to health..and eventually my Diabetes. Here is the thing that he said, like so many others who have no clue... "I have heard about this doctor who can cure diabetes. Reallly, it Can be reversed through proper diet and supplements"
Can you believe this guy. I wanted to say "Really, wow I have had this disease for 20 years and my doctor hasn't told me this. I can't believe I can be cured. Wow!! Thanks so much. To think, all I needed was to talk to you"
I am sure that he ment well, but does he really think that if this could truely be cured that the millions of us out here wouldn't have done it. Does he think we are just stupid? Or that our doctors are stupid?
And then of course he continued with the ever famous diet, weight loss and exercise theory. According to him, these things will also cure us. Does he know that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are completely different.
I just hate it when people think they know so much more about our disease then we do, and think they can educate us on the latest research and medical treatments.
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. I am grateful that I have a place like this to do it, my family gets a little tired of hearing me sometimes :)
