well I am single once more at age 54, after a 21 year relationship I have been more involved with Diabetes than ever before. I always felt that non diabetic acknowledge my condition but do not fully understand. My younger sister is also Type 1 and we support each other. Her husband is non diabetic and is super supportive( Lucky Girl) I would like to meet another diabetic that can relate to my passion for good diabetic health. I have been involved in Diabetic research studies through the Ottawa Hospital which allows me to be the first to try new medications and experimental treatment. Its nice to give back to my health team that helps me with all of my adjustments. PS I am new to this group so I hope you don't mind me telling my story. HELLO

Hello everyone. For a quick history, was "mobbed" and fired from my job in 2007, had full check up given depression and just feeling lousy, was first diagnosed with T2 (I'm not overweight was 48 at the time), blood sugar over 800 after an interview in London (London City Airport) flight cancelled, stressful day, etc), return home and demanded to see an endo who on my bday in 2008 told me I had T1 (or Lada) and Hypothyroid (Hashimoto's), wife asked for a divorce 6 months later and left with the kids "to protect them from my illness." Divorce took a long time and finally went through the courts 2 months ago. I need to get out "dating" again but the diabetes management (measuring BG, taking insulin, sudden hypo's during or after the meal) seem to be a "show stopper." I would love to hear how any of you in this group have found ways of dealing with this.

Well, he apologized profusely, he thought about it and put himself in my shoes and he felt horrible. I explained how he made me feel when we were speaking calmly. He didn't sleep at all that night and things are ok. I'm glad that I stuck to my guns. The fight was not over me being a sick person, it was whether or not I should've disclosed my personal information on my dating profile. My opinion is that I tell who I want to. Also, he did say that he probably wouldn't have met me if he had known my problems so that hurt. I wasn't sure if I was overreacting by asking him to leave my house but I dont think so. He hurt my feelings in my home and made me feel unworthy. I'm glad I stuck to my guns instead of apologized for being me. He came around and realized he was out of line and hurtful.

Hi Renka,
Sorry to hear about these issues. Perhaps it's deeper then just having the diabetes. His not sure if he can handle was a red flag.
I strongly feel that you did the right thing in explaining your diabetes to him.
Hey We all have an issues and non of us are perfect. Being able to be understanding towards a person with a medical issues shouldn't to get in the way of love. I remember when I dated this lady who was type one, we were friends since high school and I didn't know that she had diabetes, I went out and looked as much as I could to be a helpful partner rather then run the other way.If you speak to this gentleman again, ask him what he doesn't understand about diabetes and tell him that you'd be happy to educate and open his mind as well as his heart

So, once again, another one cut loose! Did I overreact?
I just started dating this guy. We met on a dating site. I told him on the first date that I was diabetic and had complications from diabetes and didn't work anymore and had frequent hospital visits but my health has been on the upswing and was hoping to meet someone who could be understanding and could handle this. FULL DISCLOSURE ON FIRST DATE. weve beenseeing each other a month and nothing physical has happened except kissing because he wants to be really careful and not hurt my feelings. He doesn't think he can handle being with someone who "is sick" ( I haven't been sick since I've been with him. ) except for a couple low blood sugars.

Last night we got into a conversation and it ended in a very bad scene. He came over to my house to cook me dinner and I asked the question...." what did you think when we met ( he has been adoring me all this time) and he said, well now that you brought it up. I think you should have written your issue on your profile. I told him he was crazy and that I decide who I think is worthy to know my person business. He said well if you wrote your ISSUES I probably wouldn't have met you. And I asked. "well, are you glad you did" and he said yes, but noes he's in a sticky situation... Blah blah blah..... The conversation went on from there as you engine. He made me feel that I am not worthy of a relationship, that I need to tell people that I AMA diabetic win complications before people meet me. Am I wrong or right to decide who I disclose this personal information too? Sorry this is somewhat rambling.... Im pretty upset.... It escalated to screaming and I told him to leave my house!
