In a way having diabetes is like being a pro athlete, rock star or celebrity. Everything in your life as a diabetic is magnified and you are forced to answer ridiculous questions much like an athlete after a game. For example, many diabetics are faced with the famous "Your a diabetic, can you eat that?" question. Just like a pro athlete we have to give the polite answer, "Yes I can have a piece of cake, I just have to make sure I take the correct amount of insulin to cover it." As diabetics we are even questioned by our doctors, we are asked why we think we are low or high at certain times in the day. It is much like a coach answering the famous "Why is so and so in a slump and what are you doing to fix it?"
As diabetics we would all like to flip out like the famous interviews below. I often will have minor meltdowns but in the privacy of my own house. No one needs to see me when I get angry about a high or low blood sugar. Diabetes has made me live the life of a rock star just without all the money.
