I Never Judge a Book By Its Cover

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 205 People

    I go to bed 20. They are asleep,

    but I need to wake them up to take their vital signs and check the blood sugar level which I subsequently treated for a hypo. Big guy, robust arms and mean looking face. "Oh no I bet this one will have an attitude" I thought. I suddenly felt really small and timid, I didn't want...

    You Can't

    Yes, the outside is what we first see and first impressions mean a lot, but they usually don't say everything about what we can and will see if and when we look further. This applies to people, animals, things, and places.
