Real talk, sometimes I want an insulin pump simply because it would a visual indicator that I’m sick. I know that that’s really silly and probably doesn’t make that much of a difference because some people are just misinformed jerks, but it would be nice for people to see something solid as…
Dear every POS who has ever used the, “Jim has 40 candy bars.. Jim eats 35 candy bars.. What does Jim have now? Jim has fucking diabetes!” meme, this is for you. As someone who has had diabetes since I was about two, I can guarantee you that.. No, I did not get it from eating a candy bar. As someone who doesn’t appreciate your tasteless ignorant and extremely uneducated “sense of humor”, I really think that you’re scum of the earth regardless of who you are. Please read THIS and maybe next time you go to share that stupid “Joke” you’ll realize that having to inject yourself with insulin every single day about six times a day, and living in fear of having seizures from a low blood sugar and eye sight damage from high blood sugar is nothing to joke about.. And also has NOTHING to do with the amount of candy bars that you eat. Idiots.
Yes. Can I steal this and post it on all the social media?
*low blood sugar.
Yeah, it’s very serious. I think it’s not seen as something that is “deadly” because people are in control of it. People do die from it, but most people are able to live happy normal lives despite it. It sounds weird, but diabetics have a different perspective on death than a normal person would I think. Literally, if we didn’t eat, we’d die a lot quicker than someone who has a working pancreas.
It’s tough to think about. It’s interesting, but it’s also something that tends to make me feel a little dreary about.
Well you don’t have to feel lonely here, there are so many just like you that follow this blog. Check out the diabetes tags on tumblr as well.
I couldn’t imagine having type 1 while being 17 in school and all that. So I think you’re way stronger than me! You can always improve and always get better.
The better you take care of yourself the better you’ll feel, remember that. Thanks for saying hi and I hope you have an awesome day!
Totally feel you, anon. First diagnosed right before I entered university, and now, three years later, it’s still a daily battle to manage this condition amidst the demands of schooling life.
But it all will come to pass! It has to! 💪
Sierra Sandison couldn’t imagine how she would hide an insulin pump during beauty pageants. So she decided to show it off for the Miss Idaho pageant. She won. Type 1 diabetics say they won, too.
That’s the lowest it’s ever been, I love my pump!!!!
The kind of diabetes you’re stuck with for life and get out of sheer bad luck. Since only 10% of diabetics fall into this category, it is also known as the type of diabetes nobody knows or gives a shit about.
