So, I've been having a lot of trouble adjusting my basal&boluses for my new pump. It just is taking some time.
If I need to change a site or treat a BG, I usually go to the nurse instead of awkwardly sitting in class. The nurse and I have become friends, so it doesn't bother me too much.
However, the other morning, my BG would just NOT go down. I was in the 400s ALL night and into the morning and at about 10am, I had just had ENOUGH. I was worried that something was wrong with the pump, so I asked my teacher to go to the nurse. I was going to take a regular injection and check out the site to see what was up.
As I was asking to leave, three boys (I'm taking a class with quite a few kids that are a grade behind me. It is frustrating, but that's what I get for keeping music in my schedule!) start making comments about my skipping class. I was so mad because I didn't want to leave class, NOT AT ALL, but hey, my health is no small matter.
After about the tenth comment as I was packing up my things and throwing my meter in my bag, I snapped and just looked at the loudest of the boys and said, "Yes, isn't it great that I have to go take a shot right now! What a fantastically exciting prospect!"
All I heard was dead silence on my way out the door.
I probably shouldn't have gotten so upset, but I don't know...
I ALWAYS get accused of skipping class. I'm going to the NURSE like maybe 2-3 times a week for some problem and THEN I have to deal with getting called down to the Dean's office because my teacher complained I missed ten minutes of her class!
School can be so frustrating!
Any similar experiences?
