Wait it’s not your time. You’re scheduled between 9:30-10AM not before. Yes, I’m running a bit late since the gym comes 1st. No, I can’t see you afterwards that’s my cooking class. Maybe we can fit you in after 11:30 instead I want to spend more time with my children. How can I ignore you when I feel you everyday I just won’t let you take up my entire schedule Don’t worry I’m not ignoring you but there honestly are better things on my schedule and I’ll see you on my time even if it might be less then I want.
FOOTNOTE– Do you know someone who has a chronic disease and has a similar attitude? G-D forbid it comes my way I hope I open up a calendar as well.
I watch my loved one suffer in a “diabetic prison” yet we know of no crime that has locked her away. Everyday she tries to escape but as she runs to far her sugars run faster leaving her stuck in her tracks. When she goes to eat her diet must be watched by what appears a prison guard as every item is calibrated so freedom is always a bite away. Freedom is only a dream because too much or too little of things we consume/enjoy with ease can lead to an dizziness, moodiness, seizure, amputation, coma or even death to those who suffer from this chronic illness. Her mind is consumed with these bars dreaming of a day when she will be free and live a life not thinking of this sentence. Type 1 Diabetes might be a mind set to some but to others it is a lifetime prison sentence.
