Pam, EVOO & Selkie, you guys are right about the hypoglycemia . . .
I'm hypoglycemic, and believe me, hell hath no fury such as when my sugar begins to crash. I deal with it, even to the point of always making sure I have a tube of glucose at hand, should I need it, because I really don't want to take my foaming at the mouth out on others around me.
IF RB does, indeed, have hypoglycemia, that might be her ONLY excuse, in my eyes, for behaving as she has in the Cool house. And even at that, that'll only go so far with me.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a point where Cool Dad was offering her/suggesting something for her to eat & she told him something to the effect of: "No, I don't WANT that!"
I'm sorry, but when I'm having blood sugar problems, I'll eat DIRT, if I have to, AND scoop it up for myself without expecting anybody else to do that for me (if I haven't hit the floor, that is).
What a high-handed bitch!
