Why Can’t People Just Understand Already?

Hi all! I have been thinking for a while and I’ve been really frustrated with how many people have the wrong idea about type 1. I can’t tell you how many different people I’ve talked to and had them say, “Oh yeah I know about diabetes because my grandma had it. But it didn’t affect her, she just took her insulin and was fine.” I get so annoyed by this because that may be true for type 2 but it’s not even remotely close to the daily reality for people living with type 1. I found this quote from The Diabetic Journey on Facebook the other day and really loved it. I feel like it explains the severity of T1D super well. Anyway, it just has me wondering what I can do to spread the word that type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are 2 SUPER different diseases!!! If anyone has ideas feel free to share – I’m open to any and all suggestions 🙂T1D
