They make jokes. I've had people in restaurants come up to me and they watch me take my insulin and they say, “You're having a piece of cake? How dare you. You're a diabetic.” You don't know this person. This is somebody you don't know. I am sorry, but I just look up at them and I say, “Well, that's why Dr. Best and Dr. Banting invented insulin.” There is a real stigma out there. With Banting and Best inventing it in this province, and we're this badly behind, I'm kind of embarrassed.
