    Hi,
    Well I carried sound a lot if spare stuff in my bag (including my bg kit). However as I went to more and more lessons I got loads of books , so I gave in some stuff to first aid.

    I always to my bg tests at break time and at lunch. You get asked a lot of questions : eg " is that a phone ".

    Luckily , I have never been bullied for having T1. Sometimes I get some stupid remarks but you just have to brush them off!

    Hope this helps ! Feel free to ask me more questions.

    Cool I was diagnosed 5 weeks ago. Still pretty new to it though. I just moved to secondary so it has been tough.

    Do you remember your first diabetic days? Do you have a pet that weirdly took more in you a couple days before being diagnosed? ImageUploadedByDCUK Forum1411329045.161788.jpg
