My baby is going to College

Are there any other parents with 18 year olds leaving home for school or jobs? My son will be over 5 hours away as he goes to college. I have so many concerns: he doesn't know his roommates yet but will be in residence. Will he be confident enough to explain his diabetes to them? Will he test regularly? I have asked him to text me everynight before bed, but I know this will not last long. I just told him it would ease my mind as I would know what his bg levels are before bed. I know they have…See More

What is your job and are their challenges with your type 1?

Posted on July 15, 2011 at 6:16pm 5 Comments

My husband is a teacher. He rarely has any problems as he has enough breaks to test as needed.

Have you been denied a job because you are Type 1?

Posted on July 15, 2011 at 5:49pm 2 Comments

Over 20 years ago, my husband wanted to be a city police officer and was denied because he had diabetes. My son who is also Type 1 said he may want to be a police officer or pilot. Any info. if this is a possibility? We do live in Canada. Thanks for the input.

Hi, nice to meet you! In answer to your question above... I have a shelf in our bathroom closet that contains all supplies. Anything in boxes is just on the shelf, anything that's been opened is in a bin so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. I also keep spares of everything in his diabetes kit, and another set of spares at the daycare he attends.
