I love my husband but sometimes he just doesnt get it. But how could he, hes not a diabetic. As for my kids, they are too young to grasp what Diabetes is but they know that mom checks her finger and has a pump. They don't get why mom doesnt feel good sometimes and I try very hard not to let them know that.
I try to put on that smile for everyone even though inside I feel sick but sometimes I just can't hide it and I just get moody. When my blood sugars are high I don't even answer the phone because I know I will be in that wierd mood. Sometimes my husband doesnt understand that I get tired easily when I go low or high and moody and sometimes just get fed up with the disease and need that few minutes to recoup and get it back together.
