Yes...that's right...those of you who've read my blog know that my cousin asked me for a little favor...read here.
So, it's been 3 weeks and I haven't heard from my cousin on whether her hubby was coming. So, I called her, thinking she would answer..nope. I left a message- please give me a call. Hubby and I are trying to prepare for your Hubby and need to get things in order. What time will he be here on Sunday, etc.
Nothing...nothing for 2 days..
until...I got a text message...yes...that's right....a TEXT message....
"My hubby will not be coming, his funding is on hold for a while. Thanks anyway."
COME ON! Do I not deserve a frickin' phone call? And with that...I'm over it....but completely relieved and happy we have a sense of normalcy again.
On another note, a youth volunteer at my place of employment was recently diagnosed with T1. Today was her first day back after getting diagnosed...she talked to me for a little bit but generally seemed happy and okay (for now). At the age of 13, I don't think it's hit her yet, but then again, her mom has T1, so she may be better prepared than I thought.
She brought her own lunch today, lots of packaged food- easy to carb count. I was standing in my boss' office with my boss and another co-worker when my boss said the following....
"I saw her earlier eating a VERY unhealthy lunch...and then she dove into the candy...so I asked her....'should you be eating that?"
My blood immediately boiled......I know my boss had good intentions and was generally looking out for the general health of our youth volunteer but I couldn't help but comment.
"Please don't take this the wrong way....but....the WORST thing you can say to a diabetic is....'should you be eating that?' I'm sure her lunch was checked by her mom and is probably packaged for easy carb counting."
I know that the volunteer was probably sneaking some candy...but it still made me get all uptight about that common comment that non-D's make.......
Do you think it's different when it comes to children and teenagers?
