In most cases my wife is very supportive and in others she is not. Sometimes I think she doesn't think when buying or making food. She really tries but it is hard to when you have someone like me around. We have been married for 18 years and together for 22. I am in somewhat denial about my condition and don't always address the problem. I guess i'm just venting here to make this more real for me and maybe I'll take itr more seriously.

Hi,
My Husband and I will be married four years next week. He is wonderful about my Diabetes. He watches me, snoops to see what the Glucose meter said earlier and is always asking....do you need to eat? Have you taken your meds? How are you and the Pump getting a long today? I believe a Spouse who is concerned and takes a vital interest in your diabetes is paramount. Not only do I continue to learn and research the newest information but so does he. I feel like we are a team and he has my back. Thanks out there to all of the interested and caring spouses....We need you..

I am the wife of a diabetic. Over the years it was poorly controlled and I'm hoping that after his recent surgery he will now take his disease more seriously.

I have been married to my husband for almost 4 years. He is also diabetic. He actually was diagnosed close to 10 years ago (before we met). We try to be each others support system, although, most of the time he eats alot of the things we are supposed to avoid. I find myself following right along behind him (lol). But now we have both decided to take our health more seriously--not only for ourselves, but for our kids. We're getting better--one day at a time!!!

I have been with my husband for 8 yrs, married for 3. A lot of the time I feel that he doesn't understand the seriousness of when I am experiencing a low. This is probably something I should have addressed 8yrs ago when we first started dating, but how did you explain diabetes to your spouses? I try to get him involved in attending meetings and even tudiabetes but no luck...... Do you have any suggestions?

There is an olde saying, . IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE..

It takes a spouse dealing with a diabetic in denial to understand what you, another spouse living with a diabetic partner in denial are trying to deal with. The same. IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE, applies just as well to understand the challenge of living with an un-supportive spouse. It is my hope that by bringing both sides together under one group, that both sides will gain a better understanding.

Syringe 25 cents, Vial of insulin $75, a healthy happy life together, PRICELESS!

Please, new members post a little intro so we can get to know each other better.
