I was recently reading a post on Diabetes Mine (http://www.diabetesmine.com/2013/02/movies-me...) about diabetes being misrepresented in media. It happens all too often and every time I just shake my head and wonder where the writers got their "facts".
Unfortunately, the misrepresentation of living with diabetes happens even more in real life. I have many acquaintances that have no idea what life is really like or what I do to manage this disease. I take every opportunity I can to help educate others about diabetes and what it is really like to live with it.
What do you do in circumstances where you hear someone talking about diabetes and it is clear that they really don't understand what this disease is all about?
Share your experiences and perhaps the rest of us can use them in our own real life interactions.
