Honestly, this is very believable. People say all sorts of idiotic things about diabetes and if I got bent out of shape every time I read or heard about it, I would be in a constant state of aggravation. Life is way too short for me to let someone like this even phase me. That said, if there is a situation where someone can be educated about the realities of life with diabetes, I am all for trying to do it, and I do. But there are some people who don't get it and never will.
