Top 10 Most Irritating Things People Say!
Why is there a common myth that Type 1 Diabetes is easy to manage? My Top 10 Of Most Irritating Statements! 1"It could be worse". Really I think to myself "How"? My child is on permanent life support every day for the rest of her life unless a cure is found. Added to which it can take 15-20 years off the average life span. 2"God wouldn't have let it happen if he didn't think you could manage" Once again, I think really. "Have you actually looked at my eyes they are kept open by match sticks, the 10 thousand grey hairs that have suddenly appeared"I didn't always look like this. 3" If you don't give them sweet things they will OK" OMG if only I had realised it was as simple as that! 4" She will grow out of it" That's news to me. Must tell the consultant 5"Children are resilient" Really you try injecting & finger pricking every day of your Life. 6 Should she be eating cake? My thoughts "Should you"? 7Will exercise & diet help? No only a cure! But it may help you. 8When they get older it will get easier for you. No, I will always worry, even more so when she leaves home and I can't keep tabs on her. 9 Couldn't you have stopped it happening? Usually I just look bewildered at that point. 10 My all time favourite, after spending 20 minutes explaining and answering questions, the person turns round and says"so it's not that serious then"! The thing is not only are we amazing parents and dedicated to caring for our children 24/7 we smile sweetly and answer politely, when people make the most stupid statements!
