Hi Diedre! I know you posted this forever and ever ago, but I just joined and I wanted to share my experience with you as well.
I am 21 years old and now a senior in college. I stayed close to home so that I could be home if I needed to be. I did, however, live on campus for the first three years and would do so again if it weren't for student teaching.
I was diagnosed at birth, which I was very fortunate for and they tell me I have a very mild case
. I do my treatments two times a day, but I did find it hard to do it in the dorms that often. I had a very reasonable roommate who also had health problems, which helped.
I am going for education which may not be the smartest idea, but ya know what it's my childhood dream and I NEED to teach. it's my passion. I did decided to do high school as it's typically not as germy.
Any questions you want to know, don't hesitate to ask
I wish you the best of luck!!
