[IP] RE: "a diabetic" vs. "diabetic"

It is curious why some diseases have become nouns. It may apply more 
to chronic diseases.   Maybe we should make a list for entertainment. 
We have diabetics, asthmatics,  neurotics, psychopaths, and  ?????
  p.s can't leave out pumpers now can we  *S*

>I completey agree.  I never use the word "diabetic" and cringe when others
>do.  I hate how the school nurse refers to the children in her schools as
>"my diabetics."
