I am headed to a JDRF walk tomorrow. Last year I tried to get my friends to go, but we all stayed up late and so it was a fail. It’s only about a 30 minute drive, and is a super flexible event, right? Like you can leave whenever you want! It doesn’t even take that long to finish the whole walk usually. Anyway, I gave everyone a heads up this year, and am actually going this time.
I am going with my roommate’s Dad, who was recently diagnosed. He’s super nice, but I’m afraid it might be awkward, since I am in college. The age difference can be weird, but I have to say he is one of the first type 1 diabetics I have actually had a good relationship with. I also think his wife will be at the walk.
His son, my roommate, was supposed to come, but bailed because of too much homework. It upsets me that he has bailed as a friend, but it is also upsetting that he isn’t supporting his dad. My other friend also bailed…because of hw. I just think it’s a lame excuse. Like if they actually wanted to come they would.
It just sucks being let down by friends. I am trying to keep a positive mindset about it, and reason with my self. Like, yes I know they have their own lives, etc. But then I’m also thinking that if they had something going on that day that was important to them, they would make the time. Or if the event was school related, or whatever. I guess what i’m saying, is if the event was overall more important.
