THINGS PEOPLE HAVE ASKED WHEN FINDING OUT I'M A TYPE ONE DIABETIC

In honor of November- National Diabetes Awareness Month
  1. Type one - that's the good kind?
    Well, neither is "good". But type one is a chronic disease that is manageable but there is yet to be a cure.
  2. Did you eat too much candy?
    Someone asked me this when I was first diagnosed. No, sugars and sweets do NOT cause Type One - it's an autoimmune disease and nothing can or will prevent it.
  3. You can't borrow my water bottle - I don't want to catch Diabetes.
    Yes...a girl said this to me one time. Diabetes is NOT contagious. I promise.
  4. I hope you don't loose a limb...or your eyesight!
    Me too.
  5. There will be a cure in the next 5 years
    They say this every year - so...
  6. You pee a lot, right?
    Yes, if my bloodsugar isn't under control. It's awesome.
  7. At least they have insulin
    Such a blessing. I'm so happy to live in this day and age! Type One was a death sentence not too long ago.
