Grrrr....people are so damn inconsiderate!!! I think it is discrimination in a way. They want you to come to these damn luncheons, but they don't want to accomodate you!!! I was telling a coworker yesterday (after I sent out an email asking everyone to remember their friendly diabetic coworker when planning on what they were bringing to the christmas party) that I have gotten to where I don't even like going to these things anymore, because there's never anything I can eat, and why do I want to sit there and watch everyone else eat? Just frustrating. I will quit bitching now. I'm there with ya sista!!!

i knew you would be!!! and then, even though there's only 14 of us in my department (including the 2 managers), i get a ton of emails afterwards saying "you're diabetic? i didn't know that."

*sigh*

in the original email, they said to bring lots of fudge, cake, cookies, chocolate, and other goodies, which is why i replied with a meak "and if you see anything that a diabetic can eat...."

ugh.

and, of course, they always bring in stuff like krispy kremes to 'reward us'. yay, some reward that is for me, to see everyone else mowing down their donuts and talking about how much they looooooove them.

the creeps.

yeah, when the krispy kreme opened here, my sup was like "i'm going to bring us all donuts", and I told her that does nothing for me. But she still did it, and brought nothing for me. I just want to tell these people, don't come crying to me in X amount of years when you are diabetic from eating all that starch/sugar, and being over weight and under active!!! Because I will be the healthy one, and taunt YOU!!

good lord, I don't know why it is so difficult!!! I have fallen off "the wagon" so bad here lately. And my body is punishing me for it! I've been so sore, and I KNOW it's from NOT working out!!

Re:
uuuuuugh.

i complain about putting so much weight on this year, but other than taking sugar back out of my diet and quitting drinking, i haven't done anything to actively combat that 20 lbs i still have left, then i wonder why it won't go away?

First rule for a potluck...

Always bring a dish that you can eat.

I have weird food allergies, and as such, I'm cautious about what I eat. Not "send you to the hospital severe food allergies" but bad enough that I don't like to deal with the consequences....

Generally too, with our potlucks we always make sure someone brings a salad too.
