I guess I feel that I owe it to my daughter to educate, and try to teach people the basics of type 1 (when they ask... or try to throw in their 2 cents). You know the basics, we've all been there a MILLION times... 'nooo, she can eat anything she wants' 'Shes gets a shot everytime she eats carbs' 'nooooo, its not sugar, its carbs' yada yada yaaaa.. its soooooo exhausting. I catch myself getting rude with people. Strangers, not so much. Its more my inlaws and other family. I'm just so sick of it (especially my inlaws, who ive explained to in dept at least 5 times.. and they either are just not listening, or dont believe me) I guess what I'm trying to say, is I'm just OVER IT. I feel sorta guilty about it in a way. When my daughter was dx 6 months ago, I'd jump at the chance to talk D. I LOVED when people would ask, when they were curious and I had the chance to let someone in. Not looking for a pitty party, but just for someone to understand. Ill share this little story.. probably not the greatest. We were in Uno's last week, and we had the worst server known to man. She was such an air head... screwed everything up. Well she saw Brooke get her shot, and she says to us "aw, she's a diabetic? She must have the bad kind"... Thank god she was far enough away she didn't hear my daughter say "aww.. she must have the bad kind.. of stupid". I wanted to laugh, ohhhh I wanted to laugh. But I couldnt.. I had to get onto my daughter and tell her never say that... but it made me giggle on the inside. Even my 3 yr old is OVER IT! I never wanted my daughter to HIDE her diabetes.. but we've started, just bc its not worth it.
