Thank you so much for sharing. I am looking into a camp coming up next month for my daughter. I am glad that your son agreed to continue his activities and was open with everyone about his T1D as well as teaching them about it. That’s awesome!
That’s my challenge with my daughter. She has only told two close friends and declined attending two of her other friends’ birthday parties as she is uncomfortable about being “different” and not being able to be “normal” like everyone else. No matter what we say or encourage her to do, she will still not want to talk about it.
I will be looking into having her meet others soon and keep encouraging her to return to her activities. She seems to have a mindset that she wants to wait until she is able to use a CGM and insulin pump which is in a month or two. But I feel that she should return to activities soon.
