This is a 5 year old post. I checked to see if I replied, so if I missed it, sorry.
My husband is the most wonderful man ever. He knew I had D when we married (38 years ago)
He has been my hero, my support, my love, and my reason to fight. He has cried with me when D has become too much, cheered me on with changes, encouraged me to try new things. He is my rock and I wish everyone, after 53 years of D, has the kind of rock I rely on.
Teach your spouse. Engage them. Take them with you to the endo or whoever you see. Help them understand by incorporating them into your care. Do not hesitate to do this--you will need their help as you age--I know. As a T1, I started to need that partnership when our son was born in 1977 and I was hospitalized for a month--delivering a beautiful son through a difficult process.
Honestly. it is all about love and commitment for me. I am truly blessed. I wish everyone the same.
