I'm sorry...I just posted but I finally have people who understand!  I need to vent!



I always get episodes at school and the nurses suck about it.

I just need to lay down for a few minutes and then (usually) Im fine (lately i keep getting sick after an initial episode, but anyway....). but the nurses always INSIST on taking me in a wheelchair to their office. and they INSIST its my blood sugar and they INSIST on pricking my finger evvvvery time. and im like "NO LEAVE ME ALONE YOU ALWAYS PRICK MY FINGER AND MY BLOOD SUGAR IS ALWAYS NORMAL AND THIS WILL JUST MAKE ME FAINT AGAIN". ugggggh! Then theyre always like "hmmmmm your blood sugar is normal....but here eat some pretzels." SO they make me eat and then I just vomit it up 10 mins later and end up going home anyway. Thank god my doctor sent them a report!!! Now i can just go lay down in peace without getting pricked or getting food shoved down my throat. Ha hopefully.
