So I posted previously about my sons obsessive checking of his blood sugar for the last few weeks but I felt that this was a slightly different subject however with a direct link to that one. When we realized that the very frequent bg checking was becoming an issue I thought that it had something to do with him recently starting school but couldn't pinpoint the problem... last year (and the 1st week or so of this one) he did great. Over the weekend M was sick and told my husband and myself on 2 separate occasions how worried he was because, since he was sick, he wasn't doing a good job taking care of his diabetes. We reminded him that it was still our job to take care of him and to make sure he was ok. So I was brainstorming why he would feel this way and remembered that a few weeks ago - around when the bg obsession began - that my son told me his teacher sent him to the nurse from recess, without a chaperone, when he was low. I did talk to her afterwards and let her know that someone needs to take him every time he feels low regardless of where they are. That it's not safe for him to go alone. She seemed surprised. :/ This weekend I brought this up to M and asked him how he felt about her sending him alone. He said he felt bad and like she didn't care what happened to him. He told me he doesn't really trust her to take care of him if something were to happen. This just makes me feel so sad for him and also angry. This wasn't a problem last year and he had 2 different teachers after his diagnoses. He felt safe with both of them. It also makes me question if she does know how to care for him! I know I already talked to her about sending him to the nurse with a chaperone but should we sit down and make sure she really understands the seriousness of all of this? Let her ask any questions she might have? How do we repair the damage to his trust in people who are supposed to be caring for him?
