I was walking back to my car after a movie this weekend and I noticed something in the street.
First a bit about the movie. It was Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself”, and you need to see it. One of the characters (a kid) in the movie has diabetes, and there are maybe two mentions of it in the entire movie. And only when it was needed for dramatic effect.
However, I am willing to forgive Mr. Perry and announced it on Twitter when I got home, “Anyone else see Tyler Perrys “I Can Do Bad…” this weekend? It was so good, going to forgive the completely inaccurate picture of diabetes!”
So anyway, walking back to the car with friends and notice a piece of clear plastic in the gutter. The familiar shape caught my eye.
So my question is:
Is diabetes really invisible or do we just fail to see the unfamiliar?
