So, here it is. I got out of a relationship a couple of months ago. She was a non-diabetic and it was a great relationship (BUT) there was a couple of speed bumps because of the diabetes. One issue that def, popped up more then once, was my freaking pump/sensor going off when she would stay the night. It would beep and vibrate her awake.... not as romantic as it sounds. Has anyone else had this issue when sleeping with someone and having your pump on? How do you work around this kind of thing? I really hate having to worry about waking up the next person I become romantically involved with every time we share a bed. Maybe I should try to date another diabetic who wears the same kind of medical equipment.... it would be like two romantic robots sharing a bed and shutting down for the night. I've dated another diabetic before and things did seem to workout a lot smoother in those kinds of circumstances. A friend of mine suggested going back to just shots and I said no way - my blood sugar stays on a tighter control thanks to the sensor and pump so thats out of the question.
Comments, questions, your own relationship stories good and bad? Go for it.
I'd love to hear them. Lets face it diabetes can .... is a pain in the ass when in a relationship and hearing others talk about it helps knowing your not alone.
