    I went to NCS last summer, as a whole I found the activities and socialising fun. I informed the staff that I had type 1 diabetes through forms and in person, not once was I checked upon. My blood sugars were always high and was sent to the hospital as I was nearly in DKA. I was always surrounded by people and found it hard to change sites or test resulting in me avoiding them. Hope this doesn’t put you too much off as it is generally a great experience!

    do you have to be in a private space to do your testing/site changes? For me i prefer to just do it and everyone else can just deal with it because im not going out of my way to make my chronic illness fit around their lives! I did used to leave class etc when i was first diagnosed, but since then i just figured that i was missing out on valuable class that i needed (gcses this year - eek!) and they could just look away if they didnt like it! Im sorry that it has already put you in such a dangerous position, and that maybe youll get more confident with it??
