My Biggest Supporter
Day 3 of Diabetes Blog Week – My Biggest Supporter.
My biggest supporter is my wife. We had been dating for just over a year when I was diagnosed, so considering the fact that I was “damaged goods” and a complete goof ball, it’s a miracle that we are married today.
The way she supports me may be a little different than you would think. While I do get the occasional “did you test?” her support is trusting me that I am doing what I need to do to control my diabetes and stay healthy. I really don’t need or want somebody to constantly nag me about every little thing. She trusts me and I can’t thank her enough.
She’s also understanding when I have to play the “diabetic card”. There are times when I get smacked by a low and I just need a minute. She understands that lows completely suck and while I do my best to prevent them, they happen and I need a break to fix it.
Thank you Mindy for being my biggest supporter. I can’t imagine anyone being better at being the wife of a Type 1 Diabetic.
Oh, and thanks for having a purse and carrying my meter for me. You’re the best!
