Living with Diabetes can be a pain in the you know what but for the most part you learn to live with it and move on. Before I was diagnosed no one paid attention to what I ate after I was diagnosed that changed. I constantly have to say, "Diabetic's can eat whatever they want in moderation." I don't mind but after a certain point and hearing the same thing my blood starts pumping. I want to say "Hello! Didn't I tell you this before?" but I don't. I explain the same thing to them over and over again. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
Diabetes Police: "You can't eat that."
Me: "Yes, I can. Diabetic's can enjoy the same foods you eat. The only difference is we can't eat it all in one serving."
Diabetes Police: "Diabetic's can't have sugar."
Me: "Yes, I can. I watch the amount of sugar I eat but I focus a lot on counting carbohydrates."
I know I'm not alone. How do you deal with Diabetes Police? If you are a PWD (Person with Diabetes) I know you have come across a few Diabetes Police. I know they mean well but COME ON, GIVE ME A BREAK, and GIVE US A BREAK!
