thanks for sharing that. I printed off a copy so I could have it to share with people. My husband does number 9 sometimes and it always bugs me. I never really thought about it until I read it here and realize that it bugs other people too.

I personally love this. I know my Mother loves me to death and so do all my relatives and friends, but they are constantly on my back 24/7. Thats OK, but I have to remind them from time to time, I am the diabetic not you. They seem to know more than me, none attended classes and they continue to keep up under my skin all the time. But please all caretakers, friends and relatives and especially family, we know you are all there to help us and we do appreciated it, but give some slack from time to time. I know I am a diabetic (46yrs) I don't need reminded everyday. But deep in our hearts we love you all and know you care about us, but hopefully we can control things throughout the day on our own. But if the diabetic is out of control then it is time for you to kick there butts.(LOL)…Debe

I think it's saying people that don't have diabetes should be considerate and think about the feelings of their friends or family that do when they are with them. when my daughter has company they are on the eating time that she is and they don't get extra snacks because it would make my daughter feel bad if they were eating and eating with NO thought about carbs and she's only allowed a certain amount. They can eat as they please at home but here they have to show some Etiquette to my diabetic little girl.I like your new picture. Okay, for some reason the website address didn't show up on my computer and it won't let me go to that site! so now you just have my opinion on what I think nondiabetic etiquette is.Sorry.
