I was diagnosed a year and a half ago and am now a freshman in college. I wanted to ask you all what you thought about the word diabetic. Does it bother you? I absolutely hate it! I feel like it limits me to a disease even though I know that people don't mean it like that. I think I might just be over-sensitive to the issue but I don't know because I've never really met and gotten to know anyone else who has diabetes (except for one of my mom's friends who's very intense.) Anyway, please let me know your thoughts and feelings about the term "diabetic." Thanks!
