    Great video! I’m thinking about showing it as the pre-dinner entertainment :) I completely agree that most people mean well and want to help but don’t have enough information to actually be helpful in any way. What I *wish* (it is the holiday season after all… I can wish right?) is that people would ask questions instead of making statements. Responding to a statement almost always sounds like you are either being defensive or argumentative. But, if someone said instead, “I’ve heard a bunch of stories about people curing their diabetes – is any of that true?” or “I want to make sure that you can enjoy the holiday dinner – is there anything in particular you need?” that would be so much easier to take.

      Well said, Leslie. It’s like they don’t realize they’re making these immense statements about diabetes to a person who lives day in and day out with diabetes…and that you might actually know more about it than they do. Funny. And irritating ;)
