my boyfriend has type 1 diabetes, and since we got together, about 1 week ago, we've been kissing a lot lol and now i feel like i am experiencing symptoms of T1D (such as thirst, needing to urinate relatviely frequently and now blurry vision - but the vision is only blurry in my left eye and my left eye is worse than my right eye anyway)
I know it's an autoimmune disorder, but i still feel like i've caught it lol.

Well, you can catch diabetic quite easily, they cannot run very fast but you cannot catch diabetes.
Do you eat lots of junk food and sugary things in general?

Sorry but paranoia is different, this is just stupidity. You are either born with type 1 or can develop type 2 if you cause your blood glucose levels to rise and fall frequently. Becoming obese is generally going to lead to it.

It is not communicable to others.

No you can't catch it. What can happen though is you start to notice more and more "symptoms" in yourself since you are exposed to them so much with your boyfriend. So even if you don't feel any different in reality you could start to notice any time you are thirsty more and focus on it too much etc.
It is of course also possible to develop one type of diabetes or various other conditions with similar symptoms. So although you can't have caught diabetes from your bf it would still be possible for you to be ill in some way. If you are feeling unwell go see your GP so they can check that out.

You can catch diabetes just like you can catch stupidity.

People aren't born with type 1diabetes. Just saying.

You don't just sound dumb if you genuinely think you caught diabetes...

Not quite but it happens early on in life, I just wasn’t focusing on it and it was simpler in this thread to say it to reinforce that you can’t catch it. But fair enough, accuracy is important.

Don't know if ironic, but there are types of Cancers and Heart diseases that are infectious depending on the right circumstances.

Just to reassure OP, type 1 diabetes is not infectious.

Sadly, yes. If you wanted some bedtime reading:

That's just a bunch of fancy words I don't understand. XD But tbh I think I'd prefer not to know anyway.
