Going into the big, bad world!
Many people can’t wait to leave school, whereas others are a bit scared and daunted by the whole thing. Sometimes by having diabetes it can make things seem worse as you’ve more things to think about…and you don’t want to look different to anyone else. Don’t worry about this as you aren’t different – you need to just think a bit about having diabetes.
The things we will think about are how you life will change and what you will do rather than going to school which could be starting college or Uni, looking for a job, getting a job, or maybe travelling.
You might also want to have a look in the Leaving Home and Travel sections if these are what you are doing.
