Help Dr. William Polonsky and his colleagues at the Behavioral Diabetes Institute understand the experiences of type 3s! This is a great group, doing incredibly valuable work in and for our community, and they need input from the spouses and partners of people with diabetes.
Please share below and couple things that you find stressful about having a partner with diabetes. The feedback you give will help create useful programs to support type 3s.
This seems like such a good idea yet I do not see any responses. So, I will go first.
My boyfriend does not regulate his blood sugars the way he needs to. I am scared for him as i know the long term effects will be devastating on his body. He seems to be in denial about this aspect of riding so high so consistently. It is stressful and a balancing act that most often ends in an argument when trying to be loving but concerned. How do I find that balance?
