You wanna know what really grinds my gears? I know, i know....petty problems, Amy...why are you even bringing them up? Well, cause I can....and cause maybe...just maybe someone will happen upon this post and take a second to think...hey, ya know...she has a point there...maybe we should change the way we view things.
Anyhoo, I am finding myself more and more irritated with the cliques in the DOC. There are the cool kids....and then the rest of us. I have no problem being a nerd....in fact I like being a nerd. I have never been one to fit into one particular group of people...and I'm ok with that. I like having a wide variety of friends...being there to support them...knowing that when I need them, they will be there to support me. In the immortal words of the great Martha Stewart......it's a good thing.
I think the thing that bothers me the most....is that we in the DOC are all living the SAME life...we are all dealing with lows, highs, injections, pumps, basals, boluses, ratios, schools, teachers, extra curricular activities, siblings, lack of sleep, illnesses......the whole lot of it....we are all living it day in and day out. So why does there have to be segregated groups of people within this community? Why does there have to be the nonsense? In the midst of incredibly amazing people going through incredibly difficult times in their lives, why does there have to be the seperation and the cliques?
Maybe I just don't get it because I am in fact one of the nerds. Maybe I am not wired the same way as these people. Maybe I am taking it the wrong way. Maybe I am wasting my time in even posting about this. Who knows.........
All I do know is...we are ALL living different versions of the exact same life.....wouldn't it be a nicer place for us all if we recognized that fact and stopped playing the cliquey high school game? I would think so.....but then again I am a bit of a hippie spirit and will choose peace love and harmony any day over elitism.
My two cents on the matter.....sorry if i have offended anyone with this post as it was not my intention....i just needed to get it out of my head because it was irritating me...kind of like that annoying little itch in the middle of your back...you know the kind....that you can't quite reach and find yourself leaning up against the corner of a wall looking like a cat rubbing up and down? LOL!
Yes, clearly I need a nap.
Back to spending quality time with my favorite type 1 as she battles the sniffles and high blood sugars. Thanks for listening to my rant.
