My mom said this to me today in reference to a student at my sister's school that she teaches at. I said there is no "very diabetic". I said they have type one just the same as James. She refuses to believe that James' has type one diabetes and feels that we could actually reverse it, although she only says that to my older sister. I have heard the "very diabetic" a few times lately. The other one that a friend said last night was about a girl that she hung around in University was diagnosed when she was 19. She said "she would think nothing of having an ice cream sundae and giving herself another shot for it.". I replied "that is good management. They can have what everyone else is having as long as they have insulin to cover it." Just a few of my pet peeves that I feel like airing.
