We all have family and friends who are concerned more about "our" diabetes management and well being than we are.
Or so they think!
They seem to have more suggestions, advice and real life experiences as "non diabetics" that they feel that they can educate a person who is a diabetic on how to live their life as a diabetic.
They know more about what we should do, should not do, eat, and should not eat.
How do you deal with them, other than to try and educate them?
Although I do not wish this (diabetes) or any chronic illness on anyone, a taste, or touch of diabetes in ones life will go a long way towards teaching one about what it is like to experience having diabetes, but until then…
