About ten minutes later he comes cycling back and I get in the middle of the trail and ask him why he can't yield to pedestrians. He responded back with, if I didn't have my earphones turned up so loud I would have heard him yelling at me to get out of the way. So I asked him the question of "what if I were deaf?" The guy says back to me, "if you were deaf you would have a shirt on that said deaf on the back." At that moment I nearly exploded and jumped the guy. I then lifted up my shirt to show my diabetes pump and CGM and told the guy I had diabetes should I wear a shirt that says diabetic on the back all the time? He got real scared that I was about to beat his a$$ and I asked him if he hated all diseased people? I then calmed down and told the guy I was a cyclist and when you are on a trail the pedestrians have the right away and that the cyclist yields to the pedestrian. He smarted off and said that pedestrians are supposed to stick to the side of the trail so cyclist can get by. I decided to leave because there was no way I could beat that much stupid out of him.
His comment made me so upset because at times it does seem like all us diseased people are supposed to constantly educate the stupid that we have diseases and certain things are not as easy for us, like diabetics need insulin to digest a cookie and stuff.
