After hearing that I went nuts!! I was swearing at the radio and was ready to call the station. How is it that diabetes can be the the punch line for a joke? If I made a joke about cancer or AIDS on the radio I would be ripped apart. Somehow it is ok for people to joke about diabetes, people do not understand diabetes. I'm sick and tired of people not understanding this disease. The diabetes community is very strong and we all do our part to get rid of this false image that everyone has of the disease.
I feel ashamed that I questioned myself for being upset about the comment the DJ made. The worst part about this whole thing is that the radio station is a major sponsor for a local diabetes walk that is held in October. It takes a lot for me to get pissed off but the comment that the DJ made did it. I don't want an apology, I want this DJ and others to understand the disease.
