I have type one diabetes...(read)
i'm a 15 year old girl and i have type one diabetes. type one diabetes is genetic. so its not they kind caused by obesity or poor food choices. sometimes when i tell people that i have type one diabetes they say 'oh is it because your chubby?' or other offensive things. they don't understand that type one diabetes can make it hard to lose weight. i'm really sick of the stereotypes and how some people purposely stay away from me because they think 'type one diabetes is contagious' is there anything i can to? or is their ignorance just going to have to be dealt with?
