I am sick and tired of the entire Western world knowing how my kidneys are functioning. — Astronaut Jim Lovell, Apollo 13 Movie
I’m not sure why that has quote stuck in my mind, but that’s what I think every time when some random person asks me about my blood sugar. I don’t understand why my blood sugar should be public information. No one else has to share personal medical information randomly throughout their day — it would be like if I walked up to someone and asked “Hey, what’s your cholesterol?” — they would look at me like I was crazy. Why is blood sugar any different? I’m not talking about loved ones here, that’s more understandable, but random people… that shit is just weird.
