My daughter is 8 and in 3rd grade, she was diagnosed 2 years ago. She started at a new school this year, and it has been challenging, much more so than the last 2. She has come home crying saying that kids at school have been making mean comments, one kid even said she cant have diabetes, if she did, she would only have 5 minutes before she died. Before this, she was never self-conscious or embarrassed about having diabetes. I have tried to talk to her, and help her feel better. I am just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to bring it up at her school, or if there is anything I can do to help her.
