Grr... Some People Just Dont Get It... I Dont Have A Choice...



[color="#4b0082"][i][font="Palatino Linotype"][size="3"][color="#2f4f4f"]"Are you still gluten free?"[/color]
What in heavens name are you thinkin? I told you yesterday that I was gluten-free for medical reasons. Ye think I really would give up suddenly? [color="#2f4f4f"]"Yes I am."
"How long you been gluten-free?"[/color]
I got no idea of how long its been no more... [color="#2f4f4f"]"Uh, since October 1rst"[/color]
[color="#2f4f4f"]"Two weeks! Wow. Are ye gonna do this the rest of your life?"[/color]
[color="#2f4f4f"]"Most likely."[/color] Didnt I just say I was doin it for medical reasons? If I feel better I aint stoppin no time soon. Besides, I aint got a choice. If I did, I sure as heck wouldnt do this hard diet. But I dont got no choice. Why dont she get it? Everyone else seems to get it. Even though sometimes I gotta remind them, but thanks for offerin. So why dont she get it none? Ive tried explainin its like an allergy... Nope. She dont get that neither. Other people get it... And they even ask me if it bothers me if they eat it around me...
[color="#2f4f4f"]"The only way I could go gluten-free was if there was some weight loss involved."[/color]
I really hate that she keeps insinuatin my weight loss is only due to this diet. No it aint. I been workin on losin weight since august. I lost 13 pounds before goin gluten-free. I also hate that she keeps sayin that she could only do it if weight loss was involved. And then it would probably be for a short period of time. Arent friends supposed to be supportive of you? I cant say she is bein supportive. Its really rather annoyin. And also is it really all that we have to talk about? I hate walkin by her desk just to have her belittle my diet. Really. Come on. From now on, I aint deliverin no mail in that area. I just will stay at my desk. Stay in the copyroom doin me projects... Whatever. Just leave me alone already, unless you got somethin to talk about other than my diet. Okay? Sound good? No? I dont care...
