This is an open “topic” that should be at the top of the “Coping and Support” Community.

Hi there! I’m grace, I’m 13 yrs old. I was diagnosed December 21 2015, at age 10 right before Christmas. I’m from seattle

Hey y’all! Does anyone have any tips for dealing with teachers who aren’t very understanding of T1D? I had a pretty bad experience the other day with a teacher who wouldn’t let me eat during class and, when I told her I have a 504 plan, was super annoyed because (in her words) “you should’ve dealt with this earlier”. Just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences :slight_smile:

At one point I’ve been almost sent out of class because I was checking my level. Apparently that equates to playing on my phone (I have a CGM).

Honestly, when I was in high I would just talk about to them and tell them I have type 1 diabetes. But, I feel that most teachers would understand if you let them know start of the semester. Im currently in freshmen in college who don’t care what you do.

Hi, I’m 16, was diagnosed when I was 15 couple days before I turned 16, anyways I live in Washington too! In Spokane area. My email is: phebelyn23@gmail.com if u want to talk!:blush:

Heyy Im Shay. Im 19, 11 years t1d strong, diagnosed at 8. University of North Carolina Wilmington clinical research

I had a proctor try to take my pump off of me during an AP test when I was in a special room with only other diabetics. I felt like they hadn’t even been trained on why I was in a room separate from all my other peers and it was VERY frustrating.
