i just need to have a bit of a rant here because there is nowhere else to do it and i dont want to jump down my mothers throat while on holiday with her. though i kind of do…
so im on holiday here with my mom-i live in europe and she lives in the carolinas, a retired registered nurse. last night she had some relatives over for dinner, relatives i know very well, we all get along, it was really so good to see them all. they all know i have t1 and its a non-issue.
so shes got some chips and dip on the counter and id made sure we got some broccoli i could dip into instead of chips (not bolus-worthy in my mind, there was apple pie for dessert). i was standing at the counter where my cousin, aunt and i were all standing and my mother was across from us and said, “oh emily, dont do that here, you could make someone NAUSEOUS”.
i was outside just afterwards with my aunt and she asked me what my mother had said, as she couldnt believe it.
my mother was a registered nurse, ffs.
