Hello name is John and I have a topic for discussion that I think everyone on DC can relate to. I am just looking for what you all think. Please leave a comment if you want.
I read on here from others the way that they are treated from other people as well as employers. I can't believe the ignorance from other people. I was at Meijer the other day looking at meters and test strips. There was a couple standing close to me and when they noticed that I was looking at the diabetic supplies they moved away from me like I was going to give them something. Are people that stupid, that they actually think that just because we are diabetic that they are going to be sick if they stand too close to us. I read a discussion this morning on DC about a woman being alone and for some reason it really hit home with me and I needed to write this. I am also bothered when I read discussions about people having trouble at work with their employer. You can't test here, that's nasty, don't be getting your blood all over everything.
My family and I don't pass judgment on anyone or look down on anyone other. So its hard for me to handle how people are to a diabetic person. We are just like everyone else, except our body doesn't handle blood sugar as well as someone who isn't diabetic. Its not like if we touch that they are going to get diabetes.
Is there enough information out there for people who aren't diabetic? I think that there should be more info for the people who treat us the way they. I am not sure if I am the only one who feels this way but like I said I needed to post this. Please let all of us on DC know how you feel and have been treated, and what you did to handle the situation. Thank you and God Bless.
