Re: [IP] Didn't know you were diabetic



I think this all goes back to people just thinking "take your medicine,
don't eat sugar...and you run smooth as silk, and you won't have any
trouble". I have heard so many comments from the "public" about diabetics
with complications, and the idea is always, "they did not take care of
themselves, they ate sugar".

I know a few years ago while at work, I had a low...and ate hard candy. One
of the ladies, did not comment to me, but spread the word that I did not
take care of myself, she had caught me eating candy.  Anytime I did not make
it to work or was not feeling well...this same lady would drop hints about
"if I would just do what I was suppose to".

I can't imagine what these people are going to think....when they actually
see me feeding my face....now that I am on the pump.

I have been pumping since last Wed. It has been rocky, although they are
saying I am doing good. I had two lows, but it doesn't seem my carb ratio is
not the same through the day.
