I am a type 1 diabetic for the last 10 years. I am on daily insulin for the 3 times a day. Initially I had to go throug a very bad phase in life due to this and had to faced a lot of challenges due to diabetes but inspite of all this it had been a smooth journey for me till now. Inspite of having this (which was very serious initially), I have managed it well, and am now working in an MNC.
But now when my parents are looking for a match (I am of age 27 now). People reject me just because of diabetes. I simply don't understand its just a way of life and why is that so difficult for people to understand. They don't even seem to do a basic research that it is simply a life style problem. I sometimes wonder what would they do if they marry some one and then they have diabetes. Would they give a divorce?
People would hear my story and say they are inspired. But I would want to tell them instead of just getting inspired treat us like "normal" and give us a chance to get back to '''normal' life (as of course you don't think diabetes to be normal).
Its not that I am dependent on marraige but the thought process of the so called educated and liberal society sickens me.
Has anyone out here faced any similar issue?
