My mom has been diabetic for some years now. I like to half-jokingly call her the worst diabetic in the world. She regularly eats ice cream, cake, brownies, drinks alcohol, doesn't exercise, has quit 2-3 of her meds without talking to her dr, should be on insulin but refuses, never checks her blood sugar. Getting the idea?
Well I live with her so I can't just alienate myself from her, but it kills me to watch her eat herself to death. But because she's far from obese and "feels okay" her favorite slogan is "I'm only hurting myself and I'm going to die one day anyways"
I've tried talking to her about it, she gets mad and tells me to mind my own buisness, I've tried making things with splenda for her, but she'll eat a little out of courtesy and then the rest goes to waste while she goes back to her ice cream.
She's my mom and I love her, and I want her to be around for my daughter's life, i just cant get through to her.
