I am on the oposit end of yor message I was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 at age 9..I am now 31 but my expiration date was 30 yrs. I am constantly sick and my husband doesn't believe me. Everyday I wake up nauseated and have Nero path so bad it hurts to move at all. He's always mad because I do not cook or clean the house like he wants but when all I do is feel like laying down its soo hard. I'm on so many meds that are supposed to help but most times I feel like they are fake. I struggle everyday and feeling worthless has now given me depression and anxiety. We have been together 16 yrs married for 6 which is half my life! I love him I truly do but the constant belittles and basically screams everyday isn't helping. He also knew how sick I was when we did tie the knot. Now I'm stuck I'm depressed..angry..wishing he had just a ounce of sympathy and wishing he could walk a day in my shoes! I've had 14 surgeries on my hands Nero path so bad that even my girl parts don't work right but all I get is....I work all day and you don't do anything..it's so hard to feel this way and want your parter to love u like they once did.. I'm not sure what type your husband has or for how long but is he on a pump? The pump is the only reason I'm alive! If I can help him in anyway or you I'd be much abiliged but I will tell you that the tole of diabetes isn't going to go away it's only going to get worse. If I can help u understand a little more or help u see just maybe what he can do I'm here for you! I am sure it's rough heck I know it is but I still wonder about his diabetes type and his age just send me a email to chat. -Krystal
