Birth Defect

You learn to live with the random questions you get from strangers when you have type 1 diabetes. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes annoying, sometimes downright rude.

One of the most common...isn't type 1 diabetes the kind of diabetes you are born with?

Anyone else get this?

At least it wasn't is that a cell phone? (thanks jacquie)

Haha. Diabetes got brought up in one of my classes today, and I mentioned I was diabetic. This guy next to me asked if I was type 1 or 2 (I'm 20 and clearly not overweight) so he was like "oh that was a stupid question. You have type 1, the one you're born with".

Uh, yeah, I have that type.

It just goes to show that a lot of people still do not know the difference between type 1 and type 2. And that their knowledge about the difference is very limited and to a point. I'm sure they don't mean offense when they ask questions like this. We should just dismiss it as a product of great ignorance.
