I know when I tell people I have diabetes, they look at me and think, 
"well gee, if you'd just lose a few pounds you wouldn't have to take 
insulin anymore", since that's what they hear in the news.  Now I 
tell people I have Type 1 Diabetes and then they ask about it.  I 
explain that I have had Type 1 since I was a child and that my body 
no longer makes insulin and I would die without it no matter how much 
I weighed.
