If you have diabetes, the health care professionals have been making constant "demands" of you, so I suppose it sounds like a good idea to issue "commandments" to others. I'm sorry to tell you, but it wont work. A far better way to gain respect, support, advocacy and all those other good things you want and need, is through friendship. Get to know and really care about other people. Find out what problems others are dealing with, (Everybody has something !) and see what you can do to help. When they find out what a nice person you are, and how you really care about them, you'll be amazed how quickly they will care about you. If you want to quote the scriptures, forget "commandments" and remember, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It works every time.
With love from JOAN
