If people already know I have diabetes, I make some jokes:
- Sure, if you want to drive me to the hospital afterwards.
- You´ll put me in a coma! Are you trying to kill me?
- It doesn´t look appealing anymore once you realize that´s what´s been getting you sick.
- If I eat that now, I will have to run around the building for 30 minutes to get my sugar back to normal, and I´ll miss the rest of the event!
It really annoys me when people think they know what I should do, whether it´s food or something else. Make a dumb comment, get a dumb answer. They asked for it. Most of the time, they´re just trying to make themselves feel better about eating unhealthy foods, and I don´t appreciate being used for that purpose. Eat what you want, but leave me out of it!
If they really do mean well, I give them a 5-minute speech about carb counts and insulin resistance. After all, people are supposed to learn something. After that, they leave me alone.
