Well, I got registered for a diabetes education class, and pissed off my sociology teacher in the process. The hospital called in the middle of sociology and I walked out to answer it. I apologized after class, but she’s still pissed. Looking back, it probably wasn’t the best choice, but damnit I had been waiting for that call for over a week, I was not about to miss it. I got caught up on all of my make up work in my other classes, now I can worry about my final projects. I have got to buckle down and work, because I cannot fail this semester. Don’t be surprised if I ask for some help, my reporting project is on juvenile diabetes, and I need interviews.

Sorry to hear that happened. Sounds like this teacher isn’t able to differentiate between really important calls and someone just talking on the phone. I would get a letter from your doctor and the diabetes educator, and make copies (keep the originals for yourself) and give them to her. Keeping the originals will insure if there is any problems with grades you have the originals. Just my take on a teacher who isn’t willing to acknowledge your health condition!

been a type one for almost 32 years ask away.

I had JD, although I was never officially diagnosed with T1D until my early 20’s. After I was diagnosed, looking back to all of the health problems I had as a kid, it made since. We don’t have a family history of diabetes, so our family doctor never clued in to have me tested for it. I can remember as far back as 6th and 7th grade having frequent yeast infections and horrible stabbing pain in my feet and toes… Gee, you’d think that would be some sort of a clue… Small town family doctors, gotta love 'em!

Anyway, I’d be more than happy to help or answer any questions!

My husband has Type1. I’ll be more than happy to help in any way I can.
