Ok. I'm at work right now at this very moment, and I understand that some people like gossip and generally blab on and on about things that are generally not of any significance at all. I usually deal with it. I just try to nod my head as our accountant rambles on what seems to be a daily basis.
From office politics, to gossip, to basically anything she can find to discuss, she'll ramble on at me for what seems like endless bits of time. However today in the midst of her conversation about mandarin Chicken, I hear her say "it's a little sweet for you" so you probably can't have it.
If there's one thing that pisses me off about having diabetes is 1. When people treat me differently. Please allow me to determine what I can and can't have before you rush to judgement. and 2. Nothing bothers me more than when people who have little to no knowledge about diabetes attempt to discuss it as if they do.
My parents were like this in the beginning but they've gotten a lot better. I still have some family members that still don't understand that babying me or treating me differently is the last thing I want, and then to the people that just like to add their input into a discussion and yet know NOTHING, ah this just especially irks me.
Sorry for my rant for the day, as I basically know no other Type 1's, and have very few truly understanding people in my life, I'm guessing you guys are the best to rant to of anyone!
