My first day of 1st grade, also my first day with diabetes at school, my teacher read a book about diabetes to the whole class, i was so embarassed, and from then on kids kept asking my the dumbest questions they could ask, i would have been fine without anyone knowing, only close friends and teachers at school. Now at high school that is how it is just close friends teachers and only a few not that close. I just get annoyed when people ask me something about diabetes then says "grandma has it", its not the same. As far as diabetes education in schools i think it would be a good idea, but it really won't work the way we would like it to.
That's an important fact about education in schools, it's not always the nicest thing to be the center of attention. I guess when so much of the diabetes education in schools originates from proactive diagnosed individuals like yourself it must be hard to live a normal school life and forget about it.
Do you feel that people would treat you differently after that?
How would you like the education done? Do you think it is important for people to know about Diabetes?
