Apologies I will try and explain more clearly...
AS the diabetic, my point is telling "us" (the diabetics) is a very dangerous thing to do on any number of levels as you likely know. It is lit emotional dynamite (on a very, very short fuse) and dangerously real stuff. That situation reminds me a lot of the Bugs-Bunny Cartoons of my childhood. Anybody even suggesting we are low (aloud) is Wiley E Coyote and holding said dynamite. In short, a baaaad place to be no matter which end of the game you're on.
As for "accusation" aspect, being told things by others (whether completely right or not -ggg-) implys all kinds of things. A proverbial black hole of wholely negative stuff. Being told we are low is defacto saying you (the diabetic) cannot do it... you (I) screwed up... that type of thing. Even never spoken, telling us we are low... simply carries that implication, in my view for whatever its worth.
I often wonder what causes the "NO" response that so many of you encounter with us, your diabetic(s)? Its real blessed clear we are crashing hard no matter what words come out of our mouth. Heck, even the family goldfish knows something is off, (ie we are dangerously low) and yet, if asked, you folks still often get the angry, annoyed "NO" loop from us.
You are low...
Thanks for explaining. And I do understand what you are saying. Wish there was a good answer for this situation. My husband (non-D) told me that he hates it when people 'accuse' him of not hearing well. I'm still trying to figure out why he used the word 'accuse'. Cause, in case you haven't guessed, he really can't hear well! And there is a treatment that would improve things, but instead he goes along feeling left out cause he can't hear what people are saying around him.
Is it an accusation if I tell him when his fly is open? Or he has a piece of spinach between his teeth as he leaves for a job interview? Where's the "I have some important information you may not be aware of and I love you so I want to tell you" come in?
