"".. I think there are other pieces too I can't quite articulate, not yet. "
Stuart, my friend, is it possible some of the yet to be articulated part of the equation is rage? Forgive my straightforwardness. I myself am definitely not…"
"Stuart, I am both an emerge nurse and someone who has lived with type 1 for forty years. I am constantly shocked anew at the stupid and callous notions my colleagues have, I become like a mother bear when I hear things like that said and jump in to…"
Thank you for contributing.
Was wondering what kind of change(s) did happen for you in that time frame...? If not sudden, what did occur, that you recall cleanly of that period?
Confident there are some generic pieces that occur I've…"
Hummmmmngh.... ok, her worry is one of the things I'd love to change/prevent if I could figure out how? Any ideas...???
One serious wall I keep crashing into, I BELIEVE it will happen again. I accept that. Reduced hopefully. But…"
Thank you for elaborating, appreciate it.
I like moving forward just like you or Rene. its necessary even. Even so -gentle shrug-
Them crying, them suffering and terrified (with cause), to me there is some responsibility for that on our…"
A very different approach...
I accept we can actively go forward sure. Yet, dangerous lows severely rip off those scabs. Lows re-teach the fear.
A certain dispassion occurs sure, for us and them. But the really bad ones haunt.
How do you…"
"I second what Rene said.

You have been diabetic a day or two, right? How the @*#(@&#(@ do you remove that guilt exactly? I agree there is…"
I wish you would teach me THAT skill!??!?!
I can be fairly descriptive, articulate even but, have a very tough time articulating these emotions cleanly. I shall try...
Kiliji have you never seen the fear, the certainty in your partners…"
"Love your answer A. Kelsey Metcalf. I'm for dropping the guilt as much as possible. Despite our best íntentions, none of us is ever going to perfectly replicate every function of a working pancreas. Hopefully we, as well as our spouses/…"
"You describe the 50 year mark as though there will be some sudden changes. But that's not the way it is. You just have to take one day at a time, and you won't notice anything obvious until your 50-year medals start arriving in the mail…"
"I guess our problem, as diabetes, is that it can happen again and again when you are a brittle diabetic and it has been almost 50 years food me. My spuse is very understanding but I do have a great deal of trouble dealing with myself after these…"
"Probably the same thing my (non-diabetic) husband said to me after he recovered from being side-swiped by a car while bicycle riding home from work, had a seizure in our bathroom in the middle of the night after being released by the hospital and I…"
"It seems like protocol is a likely cause, although it is a foolish protocol designed by someone who has never gone through a severe low, and most likely a non-diabetic. Just as it seems like every medical person I encounter these days asks a set of…"
"Massive slow sigh...
Let's put it in terms as my peers you will punch the screen over...
One of the younger nurses, two of them separately had the stunning brass to ask whether I did it (was low) DELIBERATELY.
