Truthbomb Tuesday – Hashtagging Diabetes is RUDE.

Time for a TRUTHBOMB!

I have to say it. I see this happen on too regular a basis, and while I am sure the intention is just to be funny, there is nothing funny about doing this, or Diabetes. Sorry, but I am NOT sorry. Those who find this funny probably wouldn’t if they had to fight this battle every day.

I get it, when we aren’t affected by something, it seems like funny fodder –  but this kind of stuff stings. This kind of stuff gives credibility to the very NOT CREDIBLE notion that Diabetes is the result of too many sweets.

You wouldn’t appreciate someone being snarky about a medical condition you had, would you?
