Does anyone ever feel like we are being talked down too? Some of the discussions I have read lately make me feel stupid that I do not know anything about being diabetic. I have been for 15 years, and then others are so scientific that I do not know what they are saying with out a medical dictionary. I want a discussion like I am talking to a friend. I guess maybe that is just how I am feeling today. Sorry if this offended anyone.

Hi Linda, I just happened to stop by and see this discussion. I could not agree with you more, some of the discussions are a bit too intense. But, you know what? Just dont track them…LOL I used to track over 400 discussions, but have been coming on and deleting them day by day. I think I'm down to about 40 or so, and that list will dwindle as well.
We will never learn too much about this disease, and our bodies keep changing the game plan on us, so we always need to readjust our lifestyle, food intake, and exercise regime.
Just take part in the ones you enjoy, and ignore the rest. If you get too involved with those that bring you down, you will only lose the true blessings that this community has to offer. Use this community not only for the learning tools available, but mostly for the uplift it can give you, and avoid the negatives.

Thank you for your post. I know what you mean. I did a purge yesterday of alot of tracked ones. I try to only read the ones for motivation and inspiritation but this morning I read one that was too scientific for a simple question, and I just had to say something. LOL

I don't feel that way about being diabetic exactly. To me people are different towards me when the find out that I'm on disability and the I get medicare and medicaid.

It was not about being diabetic it is about how some people on these dicussions in here make me feel. I am also on Disability and get medicare at 51 and people think that is odd. But I just say that if they were disabled like I am they would be on it too.
