Now that one made me laugh.  I can't tell you how many times this has 
happened to me when acquaintances have found out I'm diabetic.  (and it 
didn't make me laugh at the time.)   I can't imagine why anyone would think 
it's a good thing to tell a person with diabetes about all the people they 
once knew who died from the disease. >>

My mom was so upset when I was diagnosed at age 21 at how many people upon 
hearing the news would immediately respond with "oh yeah, my grandma lost 
three toes because she was diabetic ... oh yeah, my grandpa went blind ... oh 
yeah, my friend lost a leg" ... and so on and so on. So lame.
