Re: [IP] Re: Entitlement?
And again I say 'WE ARE NOT SPECIAL JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE THIS DISEASE.' It
is the hand that we have been dealt...so deal with it...don't teach
'specialism.' (I know that is not a word.) I agree with whoever asked 'where
will it end.' There are no special privileges in college or in the work
These children, and perhaps a few of the parents, should take responsibility
for their child's disease instead of trying to make everyone else
responsible...we don't need 'priority ride passes' any more than we need
'priority eating lines.' Deal with it...carry extra stuff/food with you.
Works for thousands of others not trying to cheat the system.
While I may not have a toddler or any children for that matter, I AM A
DIABETIC. Never did my mother allow such ridiculous privileges. She had me
test my sugar, which was not difficult standing in line on a hot and humid
summer day at ANY of the amusement parks that I went to. And that was before
I ever had even heard of an insulin pump. I didn't require special treatment
nor did I ask for it. I was taught to be responsible when I was able to
learn it and I learned from my mother what I was responsible for. These
children are being taught that they are not responsible for their own care.
Sorry, but this really gets my goat.
