yeah, i agree, most people are compleatly oblivious to the fact that im taking a weird drink, but if they do ask, i just say medicine, then when they say what for i just say, long story. Hey, it works! i bring a lunch like many other people in my school, so thats good. it’s really annoying, when i go out to eat with a group of friends or something, im allways sacred that they think im a calorie counter kinda girl b/c i allways get just a salad, and sometimes french fries. so they allways just give me weird looks when we’re in somewhere like Jack in the box, and i order a salad! (the ones who know about it arn’t as supprised.
