Re: [IP] parents take note

I have to chime in here.  When I read Sara's post, I completely understood
her reaction to her mother, because her mother's response sounded so much
like something MY mother would've said.  I was diagnosed last year, as an
adult, so my mother never had to deal with the disease.  No matter, what's
going on with me or my life though, my mother manages to make everything
about HER.  Even though she tries to be and thinks she is supportive, she's
not.  I can't talk to her about my Diabetes, or a lot of other things with
any substance for that matter.

If you say Sara was not wrong in her response to her mother, then why are
you criticizing her for it?  You're telling her she was disrespectful.
You're not part of her family, so IMO have no business giving unsolicited
advice on something so personal.  Of course, I don't need to speak for
Sara.....I'm sure she will tell you exactly what she thinks.

Just my opinion, as a daughter with Diabetes.
