A lot of my other family members are type 2. In fact, I am the only type 1. They are the kind of Diabetics who take a pill and never test and have 5.0 A1Cs every time. Type 2 is hard, yes but it is also different!!!
I have a lot of people who care about me (and by extension my diabetes) but absolutely every single family member thinks I should never be able to eat a piece of cake, or a lollipop, or even a piece of whit bread because it is a simple sugar!!!
A constant phrase is "Are you sure you should be eating that?" Well. no I shouldn't be eating it, but sometimes we need a little treat to keep us going. I know I do. I think about how each and every food will affect me, and sometimes I just need to not worry (even if it is just for a few minutes)!
Sometimes I just want to scream at all the incessent questions!! Does anybody get what I am saying??????????????????
