work and diabetes
How does anyone work and have a child with diabetes??? As of right now, we can't afford me to quit my job ( primary bread winner ) My husband is in the process of starting his own business (great timing I know). But sometimes I have to miss work so my husband can work, Because I would like to eventually quit my job or go down to part time. My question is how do you deal with coworkers who think that just because you have a child you shouldn't be able to miss work???? how do you deal with them at all?????? Today I needed to leave work very early because of childcare issues, got the VERY COLD shoulder from a few coworkers. A little history my son was diagnosed and I missed 3 whole days of work, my daughter was diagnosed a week later I missed a week of work. other than that only 2 days since then... I've talked to my mangager who said whe doesn't have a problem with my missed work, its just attitude from coworkers!!!!!!!
