Are we not past this people???!! Reading around the forum, I keep reading comments by T1/1.5's who very obviously look down on T2's. We seem to have a two tier system operating here. Them and us. I would just like to register, without getting into the argument about what does or does not CONTRIBUTE to the onset of which ever form of diabetes you have, that I find such attitudes insulting, judgemental, cruel and extremely unhelpful. I've said before, and I'll say again, sniping and digging does not make someone want to open up, discuss and, hopefully, change whatever needs changing. It doesn't aid education, it MAKES THINGS WORSE!!!! - but maybe that's ok? If all the T2's slink off and die, there'll be more attention and all that well deserved sympathy directed towards the more deserving others! - incase you missed it, that was sarcasm! Can we all just GET OVER IT?! We all have this thing, HOWEVER IT CAME ABOUT, can we not just share ideas, discuss what works, celebrate our successes and support each other through the tough times??? We can't change this. None of us can. But we CAN CONTROL IT. Stop the sniping. Stop the woe is me! Stop the mine is worse than yours!! STOP LOOKING DOWN ON YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS!!!! There isn't one person anywhere who is better or worse, more or less valuable to the experience of what it is to be human than any one else. What I'm really trying to say is GET OVER YOURSELVES!! rant over. I feel better now.
