To joke about diabetes, but other conditions/diseases are taboo? It's that time of year - Halloween - which is getting pretty blown out of proportion, IMO, but I digress. What set me off was a "friend's" FB update - alluding to "if you aren't already nearing a diabetic coma come to our churches' trunk or treat...". Granted, this person annoys me on a good day, so I should just take it with a grain of salt. I would like to reply something along the lines of "Ironically, diabetic comas are just as likely, if not more, to be caused by a LOW blood sugar, than a high one - crazy, right??", but it really isn't worth it. You would never hear anyone joke about cancer, asthma, autism, etc. that way. OK, vent over - thanks for listening!
