Classmate: what did you think of the diabetes lecture?
Me: it was awful. I tried to be polite but it was really, REALLY hard.
Classmate: it seemed pretty good on the pharmacological portion, but everything else was a hot mess.
Me: I'm so glad you realized that. I was afraid no one was picking up on it.
Classmate: what did you think about his opinion on the insulin pump?
Me: him saying "you're a really bad diabetic if you're on a pump" was total crap.
Classmate: I couldn't tell if me meant "bad" in the noncompliant sense, or "bad" in the having complications sense.
Me: either way, he was wrong. I don't have a pump, but my boyfriend does, and he told me you usually have to have pretty good control before your endo will switch you from MDI to pumping.
Classmate: aww your boyfriend has diabetes, too?
Me (blushing): yeah, he does.
Classmate: awww did you guys meet at diabetes camp?
Me (laughing): no, we were both too old for diabetes camp when we were diagnosed.
Classmate: well that's awesome. You guys were just meant to find each other.
I agree <3
