Every since Paula Deen admitted she has type 2 diabetes people just won't leave her alone.
First they bashed her for not telling anyone she had the disease for 2 years. My answer to that is why should she. It is her business and choice weather she wants to tel people or not. Then they bashed her timing saying she only came out with the news because she was endorsing the drug she is taking. OK, so what. If she wants to cash in on the crappy disease then why the heck not?
Then they criticized the food she has been making for years. Hello she has been making that food for years. She probably was not diabetic when she started, and she kept on doing what she was famous for. I didn't see her holding a gun up to anyone's head forcing them to put more butter on their food. Did her diet contribute to her diabetes, It is a strong possibility but we all know the risks when we do things and she took her risks just as most of us do.
Now she is being bashed because she got caught eating a hamburger in pubic. Are these people kidding. I diabetic person can eat a hamburger. A hamburger is actually a pretty balanced thing to eat, you have some carbs in the bun of course but the hamburger patty has protein in it which is good for diabetics. Ten you add vegetables, probably the worse thing that could go on it is mayonaise and all though that is fattening that is not the kind of fat that is going to raise blood sugar. Come on people, being a diabetic does not mean starving yourself to death. If she was chasing that burger down with a milk shake I could see the problem.
Being diabetic stinks, there is no doubt about that. Those of us who are diabetic don't need to be held under a microscope with other people judging us and watching our every move. Most of us are careful about what we eat, but that does not mean we can't splurge once in a while or that we can never eat anything bad, it just means we have to be more careful about it.
Do some people with diabetes abuse their bodies and do things that will put them in danger certainly, but that is their choice.
