Maybe if the doctors told you straight up from the beginning that diabetes is hell, then maybe it would be easier to cope with. Not this bullshit that you are normal and everything is going to be alright. Because it’s not. Doctors saying it’s not a big deal just make it feel so much more of a big deal and it needs to be stressed how deadly this disease is so people take it seriously.
I would not be this pessimistic. Yes the decease is a lot of work and can be a major pain.
