    We all hear idiotic things about T1D on a daily basis. I guess "this special woo diet can cure T1D" is the most common.

    But this piece of work takes the cake:

    Someone actually suggested to my wife that I had been unfaithful to her and "brought the diabetes virus into the house" because of that.


    All I can do is to laugh out loudly at people's ignorance. I would have killed myself long ago if I actually cared about all the stupid comments people make.

    And oh, I had the following conversation with someone a few days ago.

    -You know, diabetes isn't that big a deal anymore. It's virtually cured.
    -Weeeeell, the treatment options are much better and it's perfectly manageable, but it's still a life-threatening and life-changing disease.
    -No, I'm serious. There are ways to take care of it. You know, technology and stuff. It's not a big deal. You'll see.
    -Eeeehhhmmm... OK, if you say so,...

    I suspect that you hear careless and incorrect comments about Type 1 far more often when you are first dx'd and have reason to be discussing the event and the change in your families life.

    Once in a blue moon I will hear someone say something about, "diabetes" that is sloppy or Dr Oz like, but I think you'll find that it decreases over time.
