So I work in a really small office - I am the only female, which poses its own problems, with 3 men... who don't get the whole emotional thing period... Anyway, I am wondering what other diabetics go through in their work environments... Even though my bosses/co-workers say they are supportive, I don't feel very supported - expecially when I have sick days, which don't just last one day - it's more like a sick week, so I am a mess for days in a row. Not good. My point - no one really understands diabetes unless they live it, so I am looking for some help on how to handle diabetes in the work place and perhaps help/advice on how others have educated those around them. Just doing all the diabetes things I am supposed to be doing (exercise, meal planning, testing, injecting) is hard enough, but to have to continually explain/defend myself stinks. Have others found it difficult to educate their co-workers, friends, spouses??
