[IP] College Accomidations
I am reading these post on accomadations in colllege. I am laughing. I
went to a 4 year university. I never told any of the professors I had d.
Now when I went back to our local community college. I needed to take
Organic chem 1 over again and also needed to take Anatomy and Physiology 1
and 2. I do beleive I told the lab teacher I had type 1 at some point the
first semester of a and P 1. Well of course wouldn't you know the night of
our final exam. I really didn't need to take it as I had handed in a paper
on type 1 of course. This was to substitute for one of the 3 exams.
Luckily I didn't need the grade. Well of course, I had air bubbles in my
pump tubing earlier that day. So being a good diabetic i pushed them out.
I totally forgot that I needed to refill my reservoir and went off to
school. Well as the final is about to start. My pump starts alarming.
This is a 508 and they get rather pissy if you are out of insulin. I just
hit a button to shut it up. I figurd okay I can make it throught the final
without an issue. Well I was really wrong. I swear this pump went nuts
every 5 minutes. The teacher is threatening to rip that beeper off of me.
I am telling her no she won't. In the meant time I am writing her a not on
the side of the paper about the stupid diabetic who forgot to refill her
pump and had no supplies with her. I end up handing in the paper to her
she reads the note and says I should have told her earlier. I just wanted
to make sure that the grade on the paper was good. It was an A so I knew
that I was safe. She was so applogetic to me. I was just like. I really
don't need this grade so I am leaving. She had no issues with it, but was
a funny situation. The next semester the teacher was the same as the class
teacher. She heard my meter testing. I told her I was just testing
before we went into the lab. No problem. I did tell my lab partner he was
to make me leave or test if I ever acted really out of sorts. He was fine
