When you see someone preaching about cinnamon or okra..
they just had a whole segment in the news about a DIABETES CURE so of course i, hopeful fool that i am, watched it with interest. it was about scientists having discovered a gene that protects carriers from developing type 2 diabetes.
they didn’t even mention anything about type 1 being a different thing. it just perpetuated the whole “just eat better and exercise more and you’ll be cured!” myth i get so often. NO IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY WITH TYPE 1 I WILL DIE IF I DO THAT I NEED INSULIN NO MATTER WHAT I’M EATING OR DOING AND I DID NOT CAUSE THIS ON MYSELF A FLU MADE MY PANCREAS START SELF-DESTRUCTING YOU ASSES.
it made me angry.
