Is it wrong to blame your mom ?

For bringing upon your diabetes? By victim blaming her and saying stuff like ‘it’s your fault that I was born with diabetes’

    Yes. it IS wrong. IF you were born WITH diabetes, which I seriously doubt if that really happens, it IS NOT HER fault if she developed gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an auto immune disease usually triggered by an acute infection with high fevers over 102° F over several days that can happen at ANY age. Influenza, chicken pox , pneumonia, roseola ( a strep infection) and very likely rubella, red measles. mumps and tetanus are all trigger diseases for type 1 diabetes. The immune system over reacts and destroys the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas. THAT IS NOT ANYONE'S FAULT. I was NOT born with type 1 diabetes. My mother diagnosed my type 1 diabetes before my pediatrician confirmed it.

    Makes as much sense blaming Adam & Eve for you having diabetes.

    Once you reach the maturity of a 12 year old AND learned something about diabetes, you'll understand how ridiculously silly your question sounds.
