I hate people

I don't even know if I can type this coherently, I'm so upset.

O told me today that she didn't get invited to Sam's birthday party because Sam's parents didn't want to deal with O's diabetes. She seemed very matter-of-fact about this when she told me so I didn't say much but when she left the room, I cried. Who DOES that???! All you had to do was CALL me, you fuckwits! I would have talked to you about it, I would have come over and checked her sugar during the night, I would have made it so that she could have had her first sleep-over birthday party and I would have made sure she had fun. I would have done anything. Anything.

I cannot fucking believe that people are such uncaring assholes that they wouldn't invite a kid because she has diabetes. I am very tempted to write a note to Sam's parents and tell them, minus all the swearing, that I would have been happy to discuss any concerns they may have had, that all they would have had to do was to call me.

O was the only girl from her class who didn't get invited. It's like a knife in my heart just thinking about it.

Assholes. Fucking ignorant assholes.

I have no words. Poor Olivia.

I would definitely contact the parents. And explain exactly how normal and lovely Olivia is. And explain to them how both you and Olivia felt at her being left out.

Once they're done blushing, crying, and stammering an apology, you go over to the Big Board and mark "Diabetes : 0 , Olivia : 1"

Oh, sweetie. This is my first visit to you, and I just burst into tears when I read that. People can be such assholes.

I'm so sorry.
