Today, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. My mom's reaction was, I shit you not, to tell me to "walk it off". FML

Nice to see "shit you not" has survived

Parents are kind of ....special. Especially when they have never been in your certain situation.

Sorry but some people are just idiots

Right. I'm questioning if OP's mom even knows what diabetes is. I'm flabbergasted by her disgusting response.

Yeah, let's bring it back!

It was about to, 47, I shit you not.

Hey that sucks. Wish you the best of luck.

Wow, that's like telling a skin cancer patient that a little sun would do them good.

Better start walking... Away from her before you start swinging.

Tell her you'll walk it off but only if she will walk with you to rid herself of her insensitivity.

Did try to walk it off?

get her with the insulin and tell her to walk it off.

I'm so sorry OP, I've been a type 1 diabetic for almost 7 years and you can message me if you have any questions or just to talk.

Ten years here :) and yes also free to message if you need to chat. Also reddit and fb have good support groups!

I've been in this game for the last 17, so I'm with the two of you. If anyone wants to talk, I'm all for it. Mine isn't genetics, so I wouldn't mind comparing a bit

13 years and counting (hehe). Also not genetics, I'm the only one in my family, at least as far as we could trace the generations back. If anyone has questions or want to talk/rant, I'm down for it!
