ITT: people who just want to eat whatever the fuck they want without having to worry about how it’ll affect their blood sugar.
It’s not that diabetics can’t eat certain foods (which is a huge myth, so please stop perpetuating it), but that certain foods will affect our blood sugar levels in different ways. So that’s why some diabetics will avoid certain foods altogether, not because we “can’t” eat it.
Reading this is almost heartbreaking for me - it’s the every day things that we miss, the things that most people don’t even have to think about in their day-to-day lives. It would be nice to one day be able to experience what that life was like again, but I hold no realistic hope for a cure.
People with diabetes often face a less talked-about side effect of their disease: stigma.
