    I Do.....love Someone With Diabetes

    I have loved someone with Type 1 diabetes for awhile now. While I do love and support him he never really tested like he should. Never followed up with his doctor until I pressure him to do so. It has affected BOTH of our lives in some very big ways. I find myself angry...

    Advice Needed

    My wife was recently diagnosed as being borderline diabetic. This is scary enough in itself, but her father died of uncontrolled diabetes when he was in his early 50s, which makes it even scarier. My wife has been 60-80 lbs. overweight for the past seven or eight years, so she...

    My dad has type 1 diabetes.

    But he is the best person I have in my life. I wouldn't be here without him. (Old photo; I was 17 here.)

    It's been a long time coming.

    We find, or maybe even create, other issues to distract us from the seemingly inevitable truth that one day, we will lay to rest the body of our youngest child, ravaged by a lifetime of type 1 diabetes. The fear is a constant in our lives. She's too old to be controlled and too...

    My Son

    I have diabetes. And I pasted it on to my son. He was only 5 when he got it. He is 11 now. It hurts me to see him like this. I know how hard it is for me.

    I'm waiting for the day I get the call

    that my aunt has passed. Obviously people in this group understand what diabetes is, but so many people just don't get it. They don't understand what can happen. They just think diabetes is all about eating fruits and vegetables and stabbing themselves with a needle and...
