This months DSMA blog carnival topic is
Does your employer/school/friends know you have diabetes? Why or why not?
I never reveal my diabetes during a job interview, though I suppose with this whole diabetes blog thing, it is a moot point now. Once I’m on the job it is a different story. I always let the people I work with and especially those I might travel with now and again that I am diabetic. I always tell my friends as well.
The reason for this is quite simple and totally for my own benefit. The more people who know I’m diabetic, the better my chances of survival when something goes wrong. And eventually something will go wrong.
