When I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I was VERY particular about who I told and when. The four people co-workers that I told, I swore them to secrecy and even resigned from that job without everyone knowing. It's just not easy or comfortable for some people living with diabetes to let the world know . The semester before [...]
