so today was the first day of school... pretty fun i was doing awesome until i was checking my insulin pump to see how much insulin left in the hallway. i was putting it away and a teacher walked up to me and said 'why do you have your cell hpone on right now?' i calmly said, 'it's not a cellphone' and then they said 'then why do you have your ipod? i didn't get a memo about you being more special than anyone else' it told then it was an insulin pump and they DIDNT believe me! i explained to them that i have diabetes and they were like "so, thats no excuse to have your ipod or cell phone or whatever that is' i eventually showed lifted u[ my shirt to show them the infusin set on my stomach. i said "see?? i'm not lying, it is an insulin pump. i need this to live' and then they just were like 'ok' and walked away. i'm really mad and upset about this. what if my infusion sat was on my butt or my leg like it usually is???
my mom emailed my advisor and the school nurse to see what to do if it happens again, etc.
what a great way to start the year after JUST getting my pump
