“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
OMG I’m just so frustrated about that diet soda post oh my god diabetes is such a fucking invisible disease nobody fuxking talks about it nobody cares like my friends and family do but it’s just so frustrating to see that it’s so so sooo not talked about like even a lot of my friends couldn’t tell you anything correct about the disease or how it works and it’s just like people expect you to get over it and “stop eating sugar so much lol” because it doesn’t fuxking WORK THAT WAY MY PANCREAS LITERALLY STOPPED WORKING AND IM WORKING THROUGH IT AND DOING MY BEST BUT ITS REALLY NOT EASY??!!
Constant needles and finger pricks and bloodwork every. Three. Months. And numbers numbers numbers always counting numbers of carbs. A piece of bread is never just a piece of bread. 12 carbs gotta count those up gotta keep track otherwise I could get so sick and lose a leg or my sight or a kidney. My lifespan is shorter than a non diabetic by default and I get to look forward to all those previously listed problems regardless, but it’s all about trying to stave them off til LATER and boy isn’t that fun to look forward to.
Just please, don’t be so ignorant about diabetes and limit your thoughts to: “oh I have an uncle with it he can’t eat cake” like omg it’s not even close please just realize this disease is a hell of a lot harder than it seems.

I’d reblog this on my other blog but people need to learn about this if they work in fast food and I have a lot of followers on my main blog.
DON’T FUCKING DO THIS, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE WITH THIS.
seriously though, i’ve heard stories of people giving “skinny” people regular soda instead of diet… newsflash: high blood sugars make you lose weight. a skinny persom that asks for diet soda could very well be diabetic… and then if you give them regular soda, you could cause some serious damage, even comas or death. i don’t care how you feel towards a customer, GIVE THEM THE DRINK THEY ASKED FOR.
There is a coffee place near my home and they happens to serve sugar-free hot chocolate being a type one diabetic this is great because it has about half the amount of carbs. This one time I ordered it the employee rolled his eyes at me. When I got my drink I thought it tasted differently but I was with friends and wasn’t paying a ton of attention. Later my blood sugar was in the high 400s and we had no idea why, everything was in order. I had to stay up all night to get my blood sugars under control. I thought of the employee might have something to do with it. The next day I went back and the same guy was working, my mom confronted him and the manager and the guy admitted that he had given me a regular hot coco and had even put extra sugar in it. He tried to justify his actions because ” how was he supposed to know I was diabetic” and ”I thought just thought she was some chick trying to lose weight that she didn’t need to lose” He lost his job and I never went back there. But it put be in danger and if I hadn’t caught the high when I did I could of ended up in the hospital.
Something like that hot cocoa thing is ridiculously dangerous. With soda the taste is such a drastic difference that while it is still dangerous you have a much better chance of immediately realizing something is wrong.
Hey, I’m all for not doing this to “skinny” people. But if you’ve got the gaul to be rude and a total asshole to those serving you food? You probably deserve to get sick from it. It’s called Karma.
^^^NO. That is being an irresponsible employee and a disgusting person who deserves to be fired. You do not ever mess with somebody’s health.
As someone who has a degree in culinary arts and has worked extensively in customer service, this absolutely appalls me.
Your job in the food industry, especially when you’re working directly with the customers and making their food (like a barista) is to provide excellent service with a goddamned smile or a pleasant attitude. It’s your responsibility to make sure you provide them with their order no matter how rude they are.
And yeah, people can be complete assholes to people in customer service. But it’s not an excuse to fuck with their food.
You don’t know about their dietary restrictions, you don’t know if they have an allergy, diabetes, etc. When you fuck around with people’s food, you can do serious harm to their body. There’s no excuse for messing with someone’s order. Ever. You go the fucking extra mile to make sure their food is prepared safely, because you can be damn sure you’ll lose your job if you do this. And if you get the health department involved? Good fucking luck to you, because you’ll need it.
The best way to get back at people being rude is to kill them with kindness. You have no idea what anybody’s life is like. Maybe they were having a bad day. You have no idea. Just smile and be polite.
Would you add nuts to something that somebody ordered if they asked for it without? What if they’re highly allergic? You could KILL somebody by pulling shit like this. I’m a diabetic and I always ask for diet and I’ve gotten a few looks if I was ordering it along with a fatty meal (as if I’m trying to lose weight and balance out the bad with diet or something) like hey don’t judge me for what I order first of all; second I’m fucking diabetic and don’t really have a choice.
High sugars can cause a diabetic’s kidneys to shut down, blindness, and loss of circulation in the limbs which can lead to fucking AMPUTATION. Is getting back at somebody for being rude really worth ruining their lives and yours?
