Sh*t People Say to Diabetics

Fun on a Saturday, I have heard most of these questions.  I know this trend is old but I thought this one was pretty funny.  Thanks to fellow Chicagonow blogger Jenna Myers Karvunidis for sending this to me.

  • :34 reminds me of my mother saying "the doctor says that diabetes is like being pregnant, you can't be a little diabetic," to which I said, "there has to be a difference between being told to cut down your sugar intake and take some pills and Ron Santo, who lost two legs and a bladder."

    The Paula Deen reference also implies there is a difference between types of diabetes, to the extent it is implied that she got it or exacerbated it from eating the junk she cooks.

    Not being a doctor, I can't judge any of that.

  • It is rather funny sometimes the questions we are asked. even better is when people act like they know better than you, I might be new to controlling it but I do know some things. Thank you for reading.

  • Argh! I get so tired of hearing these things! Thanks for bringing a humorous twist to this disease.

  • i think it is easy to find the humor, especially with those who do not understand it
