I am in Canada (BC) with an 11yr old on mdi. He is NOT responsible about doing his bg (will bolus tho). In fairness, he has a serious anxiety disorder and I think just has too much on his plate for an 11yr old. Our school really does nothing for him for d-care hands on. They are not required to. However they are helpful and I believe they are trying. BUT: as we have no nurse/support at school, I HAVE to attend trackmeets, outdoorschool, ect. I mean, it`s not illegal to send him alone, but they have made it clear they don`t want him there without me. And I wouldn`t feel safe. Am I being overprotective? He has missed a few things because I couldn`t go, or my husband couldn`t. Also, I don`t let him sleepover at friend`s houses. He has not been responsible and tested on his own thus far, plus has no awareness for lows now. I feel like I`m stifling him, yet how else do I keep him safe? I would really like some advice on how to handle these situations. btw, when he was dx lastyear, he was great at doing everything. Then in Sept/07 all hell broke loose I am really fortuanate to be a stayhome mom, so I can go to the school and do insulin/bg checks ect.
