Hey guys. So, recently I was in a new work situation where I found myself telling at least one person everyday that I was a type one diabetic and along with this usually comes with at least one question or comment. Normally, it’s along the lines of ‘make sure you take enough breaks’ or ‘just eat whenever you need to’. But then you get to know the ones...the ones where you find your eyes rolling…yeah. As type ones, most of us have heard or been asked enough questions about type one to write a book..or 3. But, it’s a great opportunity for us to educate people on type one diabetes because we all know it can be very confusing. I mean, I’ve been diagnosed 12 years and most things still confuse me! So, in this post I’m going to share my top 6 myths and misconceptions I have been asked, how I respond and what I wish people knew about type one diabetes instead.
