  1. Check your credit score, check with your banks, your landlord and your employer. What else?

  2. We have a litter box and keep it clean. The cat uses it most of the time, but occasionally she will pee on our rug, my childrens carpet and under our bathtub (bathroom isn’t finished so she can get into a small space there). This seems to be happening more frequently, no matter how hard I try to clean it up. Any thoughts?

  3. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in June this year and I’ve just started school this week and people are teasing me when I check my blood sugar. In class I check it under the table and sometimes people will see the blood and they say I’m cutting myself, they know I’m checking my blood sugar. Also when I do the injections they think I’m doing steroids. It’s really annoying. I actually hate having diabetes, how do I deal with this?!?!?!?!?!
