Had a conversation in work yesterday with a woman who informed me there was no point my going to a market we were discussing because the big thing they had there was cheap grapes. ‘And you cant eat grapes, can you, because of your diabetes?’
Um, yes, I can eat grapes. ‘But they’re really high in sugar, arent they?’
Lead into a piece of minor diabetes advocacy on how I CAN eat anything I want, if I give enough insulin, its just that, as a slightly better informed colleague interjected, ‘You dont because its easier.’
