Diabetes Awareness Month Day 11

“Teachers may be the first to notice the early symptoms of diabetes. If a child is asking to go to the bathroom and the water fountain more than usual, let parents know.”

Every day during Diabetes Awareness Month, I will share a fact, tip, or thought on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Hi! You might want to consider a wall bed unit (Murphy bed) as this will avoid the pitfalls you have mentioned, and it will free up floor space to permit room for a sewing table and other items. Ours has built in book cases and drawers on both sides for storage (good place to keep diabetes supplies) plus built in recessed lighting above the bed and in the bookcases for night time reading (or blousing!). Some units now come with a large deep drawer at the bottom for storing extra blankets and pillows. When our unit is folded up there is a raised wood panel on the outside which is hinged and converts to a fold-down desk, perfect for doing homework. A child of 11 would be able to open and close the bed we have. I could do it with 2 fingers! It can remain made up and ready for use when when folded closed. Hope this helps.
