Yesterday at work, I was speaking to a parent on the phone. The parent mentioned that his child was pre-diabetic and then proceeded to say “I’m sure you don’t know much about that”…hmm. I immediately told him that I was actually quite familiar with diabetes as I have had Type 1 diabetes for 25 years. His response floored me:
“Wait. You actually work?” Yes.
“Full time?” Yes. “You went to college too?” Yes.
“So you have diabetes and a job?” Yes.
“Wow. That’s not normal. I guess there’s hope.” Uhh..
