Tomorrow marks my first day of Junior year. Since it is such a big year for me and I am taking some harder classes, I am writing a few posts in advanced but will still be keeping updates on my Instagram and I will be posting current events on here as well.
Today I wanted to talk about how school is while having T1D.
I have heard stories about how diabetics hate their schools nurses and they don’t feel comfortable going to the nurse because they don’t have a good relationship with them. For me, that’s the complete opposite. My nurse (I am not going to say her name for privacy reasons) is so nice. She always looks out for me and she loves when I come in to see her. I actually go out of my way to find myself down there just to talk to her.
This year is going to be a bit different for me because every other day I don’t have off so I am still trying to figure out when I will be able to go down to see her and tell her my blood sugar, but I will figure that out. On the days where I do have off, I have off twice. That isn’t my favorite thing because the other days I don’t have anything so I’m not even sure when I will be able to eat and keep my sugars stable. It’s all going to take time to get used to especially since I am used to having off everyday. Once I get the hang of it, I won’t even realize that it’s different so it will all be ok.
For everyone who is also starting school or has already started, I wish you all the best of luck. Have a great school year! Happy Fall!
