Like "I understand how you feel, I've been a diabetic for 10 years and have learn to live with it. My family thinks they know what is best for me, but they have no idea what it takes to live with this diabetes. You have to manage your life to ensure that no one around you think that you are a diabetic. Wake up with a smile on your face and everyone around you will not notice a life style change. Best advance someone gave me is one day at a time and you won't be able to beat it, because I tried and I'm on insulin now. Love live and everyone around you."
