But then my mom said something else to me. She said she was driving with a friend of my Aunts who has been friends with my Aunt since Presley's diagnoses, who has donated money to our walk, and she STILL didn't understand that Presley was never going to be cured of diabetes, that Presley is 100% insulin dependent. I looked at my mom and said "wow, we're obviously not being very clear" So let me be clear.
TYPE 1 DIABETES IS NOT LIKE TYPE 2 DIABETES.
TYPE 1 DIABETES MAKES UP A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF DIABETICS
TYPE 1 DIABETES is an AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE!
THE PANCREAS NO longer WORKS!!!!
INSULIN IS NOT A CURE!
Presley's PUMP is not a CURE, it's sort of like Life support.
Lets Also be VERY clear. People with diabetes can live FULL normal lives!
But they have added challenges that come with some pretty crappy side effects, like
AND BLINDNESS TO NAME A FEW
TYPE 1 AND TYPE 2 DIABETES .... NOT the same
TYPE 1 DIABETICS ARE 100% INSULIN DEPENDENT
THEY WILL ALWAYS BE INSULIN DEPENDENT! THEY WILL NEVER NOT BE INSULIN DEPENDET
THERE IS NOTHING TYPE 1 DIABETICS DID TO CAUSE THIS, IT JUST HAPPENED TO THEM
BUT ALL THE AWFUL SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH DIABETES CAN STILL EFFECT THEM
