I have found there is a common myth so many people believe and it drives me crazy. when i tell people im a diabetic with high cholesterol they look at me and say "you" but ur not overweight. why do people think that that's the only way ur in "danger" of having those conditions? do they not get it that sometimes ur genetics play a big factor in what happens as you get older? my whole family on both sides are diabetics. i had hoped it would skip me but nope! anyway its not just needed to vent for a few minutes. and thank goodness for my neighbor (she's like my 2nd mom) that is a nurse and makes sure that i eat right and fusses at me when i havent had my medicine yet or forget my glucometer at home.
