I'm copy/pasting a bit from another discussion because this raised the question in my mind: How have other people reacted when you've disclosed you were Diabetic to them?
Diabetes is much more common than I really realized. I am currently back in the dating world and I'm always a little apprehensive to admit I am a Type II for fear I'll be labeled as fat, lazy, or that it was "my fault" or something. While I do weigh more than I should I wasn't guzzling sugar or anything it seems to be more a hereditary thing in my case.
I actually had a date with a woman on just Tuesday and found out SHE was pre-diabetic…got her numbers down luckily but was well on her way. Most people are like whatever when they find out.
What have your experiences been? Has it made relationships tricky at all? I'm adopting the stance if it doesn't bother me, it shouldn't bother you.
