Have any of you experinced this being a diabetic? I did a few times and it was at a hospital by nurses! I was very hurt by it, I cried when the nurse(s) left my room. And this was right after my daughter was born! It is not my fault I am a type 2 diabetic. It runs in my family. (even as young as 20!) I would find it kinda comforting if I knew other people went through the same things or simaliar that I did.

I have from the stand point that people look at what I am eating and comment that I didn't know that diabetics could eat so and so. I know how many carbs I can have and stick to my guidelines. I like it when people forget that I am a diabetic and offer me things I know I should not eat. At least they are treating my normally. Try (ha,ha) to ignore the stupid people with their negative comments. We are here for your support.

If you would be willing I would like to know a little bit more about the specifics of how the nurses discriminated against you. However, I understand if you choose not to go into details. May I also say that when people are hateful to me I make a conscious effort to tell myself that I didn't deserve to be on the receiving end of the inappropariate behavior. Then I try to detach with love from the individual who acted that way knowing that it is their problem, not mine.
