With all due respect the words uneducated twat spring to mind.
I think you will find one of the biggest problems with the "youth of today" is drink followed by drugs and not early on set diabetes
Having lived with diabetes since the age of 14 your comments are bordering offensive.
Having diabetes should not make you a couch spud or mean that you are any less of a human than any other person, as your post would indicate.
I can do most things in life that you or any others may choose.
Most diabetics I know are the same.
The only two things it has ever stopped me doing is joining the police force and learning to fly.
Both of which I could now do if I so choose.
Injecting insulin 4 times a day does not mean I can't live life to the full.
Those that know me know I do!
I would request you put you brain into gear before you put your fingers into motion that way you are unlikely to offend people in the way you have and do.
Am now climbing down off of my soap box.
