Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.

Hi Linda....it's perfectly normal for your husband to feel angry.
Understandably. First...blood work just before Christmas, so he likely wasn't himself for a while. Then wondering about the results during the 3 days prior to learning he has diabetes...AND during Christmas Holidays! Double whammy! If there EVER was a difficult time (more than any other) for us (diabetics)...it's Christmas (well...and Thanksgiving), when F-O-O-D is a big focus!!
Your husband is experiencing the stages of grief....one of them is anger....there's also denial. Diabetes is a way of life....and it affects the whole family.
It'll get easier...I promise.
Have you had the chance to check out any of the groups?
He was put on shots right away....good!!
Browse away...and if you need someone to talk to, or a place to vent...I'm right here!
hugs....linda

We're so happy that you're finally here!
Welcome home Linda!
My husband and I are both diabetic (type 2).
Diagnosed on the 26th....not easy!! How's it all going?
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends.
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in,
click on "all groups". You can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the
space provided.
Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well.
The resource boxes at the top of the home "Home" page, and
"About us" at the very bottom of your page and every page (the footer), offer you more information still.
