I am taking college classes and most of the teachers have a "cell phone off" rule. I usually tell them that I need to leave mine on vibrate because I have a diabetic child and he may need to reach me. I feel the need to specify that it is Type 1 or insulin dependent so they realize why it is important for my child to reach me. I almost want to say that it is the "bad" kind of diabetes. Please don't flame me, but since a lot of times Type 2 is due to obesity, poor eating habits, etc...I don't want them to think it is that kind. When you tell someone your child has diabetes, do you specify what kind?
