Okay, this is a quick post, but it needs to be done! I am so annoyed of commercials that advertise diabetes care, when it is all about type 2 diabetes! People just don't understand the difference between T1D and T2D!! I wish I could just drink a glycerna (or whatever it's called) shake for breakfast and that would level off my diabetes perfectly. I wish I could just 'eat better' and my diabetes would go away. It's just not that easy! I am stuck with this for life, just as every other type one diabetic like me. I almost wish Type 2 had a different name, because they are very different conditions! I am not diabetic because I ate too much sugar, or because I didn't get enough exercise! I did nothing wrong to get this, and a magic drink in the morning will not take it away.
Anyways, I just had to get that out. I don't mind being diabetic, I just hate that we get lumped in with Type 2's so often. It's so different, people just don't understand.
