Insulin and therapy Dinah

Not only is therapy very much like insulin injections, but anxiety and depression are often side effects from diabetes. Maybe he really is thinking about rethinking his attitude?

Or, here's an idea: maybe he was trying to open a path of communication, and you were reacting to a perceived threat of stigmatization because of mental illness? Could it be that he was honestly trying to learn?

Guess I'm trying to help you see other possibilities. Probably not the most helpful thing for you right now. For what it's worth, my husband and I talk about my depression as analogous to Type I diabetes. I think it's a good metaphor, and I think it probably did help your boss understand a little more.
