My 9 yo daughter has been pumping for about a month now, and has done amazingly well with everything. Her numbers have improved drastically, and I really didn't think she had any issues with it... Last night she broke down crying, telling me that she is really afraid of going to school with the pump because she thinks people will make fun of her. I talked with her and tried to explain that realistically, kids will be more interested in knowing what exactly it is... but I also know that there are just some mean kids out there.. sad reality. Last year she was MDI, so nobody really ever saw her test or give herself shots (done in office). My question is.. anyone who has had a child in this age range ever deal with their children being worried about the pump at school?
