Tagline or Pick-Up Line?
My husband asked me the other day why exactly people on the street don't seem to understand the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
"Is it just that type 2 is more prevalent?" he asked.
Yes, I told him. There are nearly 26 million people with diabetes in the US. And only about a million of us have type 1, I think.
With a grin, the next thing out of his mouth was, "Does that mean I've got myself one in a million?"
I laughed. While rolling my eyes. But I loved it.
One in a million. That should be the tagline for those of us with type 1 diabetes.
Though in digging on the interwebz, I see now that the estimate last year was more like I'm one of 3 million. Still...
I'm not going to argue with diabetes-themed romance. :)
