i admit that i'm stubborn. most places do not even CONSIDER diabetics when they do their 'bonus' luncheons/whatever. and, being hypoglycemic (not diabetic yet, but still can't eat sugar), i get pissy about it, and eat whatever they serve, anyways, cuz why should IIII be left out, just because i have an overactive pancreas?!? case in point: they're serving 'breakfast snacks' to celebrate our move to the new building.

"breakfast snacks", apparantly, equals "cookies and cake". mmm. healthy. thanks.

so, gimme about 5 min, i'll bounce off the walls, sing loudly to myself, rock back and forth in my chair like a mental patient until the sugar high subsides...

... and the low blood sugar illness kicks in.

Re:
the last lady to work in the h.r. department would always order something special for me, i.e. 'no sugar added' vanilla with extra nuts on the top, but no one that's there now cares...

i sent a mass email out to my department, and they've sworn to keep me far from sugar from now on.

grrr!
What ticks me off about situations like that is people get all annoyed with me when I say no. "Why not? Have some! have some" I SAID NO!!!!

Eating junk in the morning usually makes me sick..

Re: grrr!
I don't know where people get off telling others what to eat.. or giving others a bad time if they have different eating habits than other people..

Re: grrr!
just like when you were in high school and the idiots that would LOVE to point it out LOUDLY that you have a zit that needs popped, as if they were doing you a service, as if you hadn't looked in the mirror for a week.

Re: grrr!
LOL as if zit popping was a good idea anyway, it spreads bacteria all over your face and also you can scar! SCAAAAAAAAAAAR!!

I'm so glad I was halfway home schooled through HS, cuz whenever I encounter anything now that smacks of HS crap, it ticks me off in a HURRY LOL

Re: grrr!

Re: grrr!
I hate the ones 'under the skin' that no matter how much makeup you put on it, it looks like a big ol lump just waiting to pop out and say "GOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNIN VIETNAM!!!"

Re: grrr!
and, what's frustrating, is that the one in the cruise pics, i babied it and took care of it, and didn't pop it, etc., and it STILL left a honkin scar! now THAT'S not fair!

Re: grrr!
all of mine leave scars whether I pop it or not cuz I'm so freakin WHITE!!!

Have you tried putting alpha hydroxy stuff on it? it doesn't work for me, but it's worked for others

oh god ain't this the truth! i dread it when we have luncheons and stuff anymore. everything is sooo starchy, and there are never any diabetic friendly desserts! like the lunch yesterday, everything was starchy, except for the turkey, and I didn't EVEN venture near the dessert table!!

Re:
*vigorous nod* i get all sad and stuff, and instead of it being a 'celebration', i end up starving and having to get my own food somewhere else, anyhow.

for the longest time, whenever we had a potluck, i would always offer to bring the soda, because if i DON'T, no one brings any diet.
