RE: [IPk] RE: Today's Dilemma

Further to my earlier email, my perception was that the kids were quite
unfazed by seeing me in a hypo, but seeing a teacher dealing with my hypo had
no end of repercussions...

 It might scare the other children initially, but I think they will be
accepting
of this if the worse
 happened. Kids are more worried and afraid that something that happens to
someone else could happen to
 them, but as it would be explained that it was because Danielle has to take
insulin they would be
 reassured and have an explanation. I am sure that Danielle would be very
upset
if it did happen, but it
 would probably not be as bad as she thinks. When I was 10 one of my friends
who
lived nearby, who was
 18 months younger than me had epilepsy and children didn't treat her any
different because of it. She
did have fits at school from time to time.
