I had a lenghtly conversation with my mom, I was to visit in June, however, I will not be able to since I am going to be getting an insulin pump and insulin pump education classes will be during the week of my vacation. I decided that my health is more important than a vacation, I can still visit during the weekends and stuff. However, my thinks I am being used as a guinea pig, that I have created all these problems myself and that I should get over it and watch Dr. Oz! I don't have anything against Dr. Oz but telling people if you lose weight you will be diabetic free is incorrect. You will curve the disease but you will have it. My mom says that I must know more than her. She knows nothing about Diabetes only what she hears and sees on TV. She made me feel really sad and I said I am a Diabetic! I live with diabtes for 9 years now, I am a Diabetic! get it! She does not understand. I thought my mom would understand and be happy that I am taking care of myself and not make me feel bad tha I can't visit her. I just visited her in March for 3 days. I now it is not enough but that is all I can do right now. Besides traveling 8 hours is a lot for me, I drive the whole way home with my daughter and dogs. It is tiring. They never visit me ever.
Not looking for pity. Just support Thanks
