*Sighs.* I feel like no one understands me, how serious Diabetes is, how not everything is perfect (and it doesn't mean that something is wrong at home when things get heated,) and the food police . - I feel like people who don't have to suffer with Diabetes think that I make a big deal out of everything, but they don't understand how emotionally detached I have become. - I always try and hide my pain at school and when I'm around my friends. I feel like I can't be myself around them, since if I was myself then I would be the girl crying in the corner of my classrooms. - Whenever I have to go to the bathroom, teachers almost ALWAYS say 'YES! Of course! Right away, yeah,' it's embarassing since the boys look at me like I'm on my period or something, thinking that I have to go to the bathroom for a reason. I'm a normal human being and I have to go to the bathroom sometimes! - People complain about 'lyk, how he omg dumped me,' and how 'omg i lyk got a 99' while I fail at that said subject since I don't have enough time or patience to learn it. I'm almost always constantly thinking about Diabetes. - The school nurse is a pain in the butt. She's nice, but she's an idiot (no offense Mrs. Smith!) - People tell me what I can and can't do, diet books have false information, people judge me. - One guy wouldn't go out with me a few years ago (I'm 14 now,) since I was 'weird for my Diabetes.' - People tell me that I'm not normal. Sorry if this was a long vent, but I'm hoping that we can ALL blow off some steam. To anybody who's put together about this, unlike myself, how can I fix it? I think God picks the kids to get Diabetes who he sees the most potential in, to make me stronger. My fortune cookies always say that I will follow my dreams, so maybe I'll be on TV some day! If I AM, you can bet I'll be doing everything I can to help Diabetes (well, not everything but you know....?) Anyway, help, please! Venting time! What do YOU hate about Diabetes?
