I know I should expect to hear these.. and when I do, I usually let it go in one ear and out the other.. but today/tonight I couldn't!!! "So, how's your son doing with his Diabetes?" me - "Okay, we got him started on the pump this summer" "Oh! So is he going to be on that for a long time?" me - ???? "Well, yes, he needs insulin for everything he eats." "Every time? When will he outgrow it?" me - ??? OMG.. "He will have to take insulin every day of his life, multiple times a day, until they find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes." "oh.. so he has the bad kind of diabetes,.. that's too bad!" OMG.. sigh. I almost feel like I should have a little fact sheet done up so I can hand it to people that are curious/maybe genuinely interested so that they have a better understanding! The kicker in this all.. the guy is a Type 2!!!
