Thank you Alnona, that means a lot to me. Since I was diagnosed I have felt very much alone at times. My husband tries to be supportive but I believe he either forgets or hasn't come to terms with it. Both my father and his mother had diabetes and both died due to complications from it, so I'm sure that weighs heavy on his mind if he lets himself think about it. I haven't told anyone in my family yet because, 1. I do not want them to worry about me, 2. I don't want the pity (for lack of a better word), and 3. I don't want the lectures or questioning of everything I eat because they don't truly understand diabetes. I am doing a lot of research about and am trying to learn as much as I can.
Thank you for the support.
