We had a staff meeting yesterday afternoon and it was the first time we sat down with our new supervisor, so she had us go around the table to introduce ourselves, say how long we've been there and state a fact that not everyone knew about you.
I chose to let everyone know that I am a diabetic.
My supervisor held me back afterward to chat and she shared with me that she too is diabetic. And also a few things about how she loves having me working there and that she's always happy to back up someone who loves their job.
It's nice having someone else at work that knows what I'm going through. It's nice that someone else there gets cranky when they're running high, so I can use the excuse that "If I'm cranky, blame it on my 'betes." and not get a weird look.
