Hi I need some advice. Every day at my new school kids were making fun of me because of my type one diabetes. the nurse won't let me test in her office she makes me test in class. But because I test every 2 hours because I don't feel my lows kids in my classes see what I am doing even though I try to hide it. I tried ignoring the kids for 6 weeks last year but that only made it worse. I am 15 and in 10th grade as of now. I have no choice whether to wear the pod on my arm because for the next 3 months I will be on the pod. I used animas ping over the summer and loved it not a single problem. but that was only trialing. Now I have to use the pod until I get covered for animas by insurance. Lets face for me the pod is the worst pump I have a lot of failures and inconsistant delivery. there is no vibrate option. So when it fails in class kids use it to torment me and say mean things. I try to let it roll off my back but its hard. When my pod fails I have to go to the incompetant nurses office and she yells at me. She does not understand I did not cause it. when I get an alarm in class again the kids say ella shut that thing up your distracting me. they say this to get the teacher upset with me even though it does not really bother them. they just use it as an excuse. I am very self contious about this because the teacher gets really mad at me. I have a different teacher for every class but some understand a little and some completely think I am doing it for attention when infact I do not even control it. this is unfair to me. Unfortunately I don't have the option of switching schools.
The kids believe I did something to get diabetes when in fact they are completely wrong. they are constantly telling me to loose weight when I am not that heavy but I am on Weight watchers.
now that I have written a novel please let me know what to do
