I want non-diabetics to know that even though I have diabetes, I can do anything I want. Non-diabetics should also know that diabetics are the same as all people, just they have to monitor their blood sugar.
Non-diabetics shouldn’t think that we got diabetes from eating too much sugar; it’s just a disease that scientists haven’t discovered a cure for.
They should also know that diabetes isn’t contagious.
Diabetics are the same as everyone. Just because we wear pumps and take carbs to treat lows doesn’t mean we’re different.
It makes me feel sad when people go around thinking that we ate too much sugar so we deserve this disease.
We don’t deserve it. It just happened.
