<snip>As to those that don't see a difference between "being a diabetic" and
"having diabetes" I extend my sympathy. I must assume that you miss other
subtle denotations in English and miss much of the poetry and meaning
expressed in English when properly used.
WHAT? I appologize for those that are not offended by this, and maybe I am
over reacting to this, but I am just stumped as to why you would say that
because I use both "diabetic" and "having diabetes" I am less credible.
Excuse me? Less credible for what? For my opinions? For my knowledge about
the disease I have lived with for 14 years? You are intitled to your opinion,
but that does not mean that you can cut down other people. I may not have a
college degree (I am currently a junior/senior in college) but that does not
mean that I am not inteligent. I love studying english, write poetry and
enjoy greatly wrintting poetry. How doesusing diabetic vs having diabetes
leads to missing subtle denotations in English? I am confused. I respect the
fact that you voiced your opinion, Beverely is correct, it is a great thing
about living in the USofA. But I do believe you are out of line in attacking
people's credibility and education.
