3 Things You Should Never Say to a Person with Diabetes

So many people say things without even thinking! When I tell people I have diabetes, certain thoughts tend to just pop out of their mouths, it can be frustrating because while those thoughts probably weren’t meant to be hurtful, but sometimes they can feel that way!

Here are 3 important questions you should never say to a person with diabetes:

I already know that I am not the only one out there who gets kinda annoyed by these questions or comments. I have a tendency of not answering the question or comment directly, and switching around the subject to explain the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. I also like to explain that MY type of diabetes is much different from your grandma’s  / grandpa’s / aunt’s / uncle’s / mom’s / dad’s / best friend to your cousin’s type of diabetes.

I will show off my insulin pump and CGM. I feel like once I do that, they have a much better understanding of how much different (and harder) my diabetes is to control.
