What Scares Me About Diabetes



What Scares Me About Diabetes and diabetics

Is when I meet a diabetic who thinks:

I don’t have to watch my diet as long as I take my pills.

My doctor is a professional, I trust him to keep me healthy

I must be o.k., I feel o.k. (I felt o.k. right up until I had a stroke)

I don’t think diabetes is as dangerous as people tell me.

I don’t need to check my sugar levels.

Fails to realize the person who is responsible for their health is them.

Thinks they can cheat & eat junk all the time without consequences.

Or . . .

Going blind because you failed to manage yourself.

Meeting someone who has already lost body parts & will not change.

The thought that millions will get diabetes due to ignorance.

Doctors that think prescribing drugs is all they need to do for their patient.
