Well, well, well, it’s poll results time again and last month we asked how many people do you tell about your diabetes. This was designed to tie-in with Diabetes UK’s Diabetes Week theme of sharing one’s experience with diabetes. The fact the Diabetes Week was in June shows that we don’t really update the poll every month and actually leave it two or three month’s between polls. I blame myself, I really do.
Anyway, self-flagellation aside, let’s get on with the results; all of you seemed to be a nice, open lot with 34% telling their extended friends and work colleagues all about their diabetes and 30% boring for their country about the ‘betes. Good work!
14% were more reticent, only talking to close friends and family about their condition and 22% refused to answer the poll and expressed this by voting in the poll. This is what happens when you open up polls to the general Internet. *sigh*
Inspired by a recent and joyful hypo at 2am, this month we’re asking “How much does your partner help with hypos?”. Cast your vote over on the right hand side as usual.
Those results in full:
Extended friends and work colleagues (34%)
Everyone! I could bore for my country about it! (30%)
No one – I’m not even answering this poll (22%)
Only my close friends and family (14%)
