Jack has been very lucky with the way people surrounding him have reacted to his diabetes;
High School is exactly the same, I was terrified when he started High School however they were amazing, he is in lots of sports teams and last year won an award as one of the runners up, as sport personality of the year. They encourage him and push him to do lots of sports and he loves sport, as a result he absolutely loves School.
But we have had to deal with some odd misconceptions, reactions and question over the years. If we would allow it people would treat him like he is fragile. He is so not.
A couple of years ago we visited a lovely aunt of Chris’s, she proceeded to get two a huge bowls of sweets; 1 for Joe, 1 for Jack. Chris told her Jack could not eat all of those without an injection. So she took the bowl of Jack and tipped all the sweets into Joe’s bowl and said so oh I am really sorry.
