Anyone from Dallas, Texas?
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.
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
Congrats Angela & to your partner!!
Very cute! I wish to be as lucky as you two!
Angela, you are an inspiration to us all. Just kidding, I'm the guy she's dating. But seriously, TuDiabetes brought us together, so... thanks!
