Co Workers

Ok. I thought I had some good co workers but now they are hounding me on the things I eat on break. I been trying hard to eat something healthy like granola cereal and fruit or bagels, but I like to eat a cookie once in awhile and When I do they yell. Escpecially this one guy who is in his 60's and has type 2 and on Pills. He just chewed me out because he saw me eating cookes even after I had a roast beef sandwhich and he went on and on bout how he was higher then normal this morning and he was mad because he didnt do anything to be high

I know I should speak up but I feel if I do they will get madder. What do you Suggest or Do??

even after eating I was 104 and when I woke up this morning was 164

I am so ticked off that im sure i will explode anyminute now


All because I got denied AGAIN for health insurance even though i have bills comming out of the wazoo and bills consisting of over 5,000 dollars, from when I was in the Hospital because of DKA. How can one deny a person who has a chronic illness and needs medication and has bills like I do. They say its all because I make TOO MUCH FREAKIN MONEY. Thats to me is Bullshit. I cant even pay my freakin bills from my paycheck. grrr
