Re: [IPk] To Laura Winter

 Thats ridiculous! They cant say that!! They took you on knowing you were
diabetic, it would be like saying to an epileptic, look love i realise your
having a fit but could you put it on hold a minute and get back to work. You
just wouldnt do it! I suppose depending on how early you caught the bubbles they
could maybe wait 20 minutes or so if you had absolutely no choice other than to
leave them but are they going to be more annoyed because theyre short staffed
for 10-20 minutes or when you go ridiculously high and end up off work for a few
days because i know which one i'd prefer if i was them!
  Is there anyone you can complain to?

Thanks Sue

My basals are all sorted. Back at work with a few problems! I work for Clarks
and I am a trained fitter.I went low one day this week and also had air
bubbles, so went off the shop floor to sort them out, but was needed on the
shop floor. The duty manager for that day who is a Team Leader said that I
would have to leave the pump and my blood sugar till they was more staff on
the shop floor after her dinner break. As I am a newy to all the pump nad job
situation, is it exceptable for them to say that? It has left me looking for a
new job and QUICK! Lol.

Hi Laura,

I am a bit behind with my emails and trying to catch up. When i saw your
email from sunday 6 April, when you were trying so hard to get everything
and having a few problems. Try not to worry, it is early days yet. You have
to take things slowly, and can't expect everything to be right in such a
space of time. Stick with it, with the support of your DSN and people on
this board. I hope you have made it up with your mum! I'm sure she
and only wants to support you.

I know you want to get things sorted as quickly as possible, but remember, a
good nights sleep is also important (as long as you are not going too low and
running into problems!).

Take care, and you will get there. We all understand, and have probably been
in similar circumstances.

Good luck
