365 Writing Prompt: Perspective

Write about the last disagreement you had with a friend or family member–from their perspective.

I wouldn’t call it disagreement but a friendly advice. My friend complains of her health, her blood pressure is up, she has diabetes, she has to lower her blood sugar, only possible way is to take a pill.

She lives in a big city, where she has a lot of friends, most of them are younger. They love  parties , so they have get together almost five times a week,this does not help her situation, the food is the problem and it is rich food means a lot of butter is used to cook it.They eat late which is 10 pm according to what I read and heard, the dinner should be eaten from 5 to 6 pm. By 7 pm everyone should stop eating to maintain good health.

When she is at home she is cautious about what she eats. She follows the time she should stop eating, it is when she goes to parties this is difficult to do.

She wants to be social, therefore she does not mind eating at 10 pm , I argue with her about it, she laughs and tells me she  cannot help going to these parties, the end result is she is hurting herself.
