My boyfriend has been diagnosed with diabetes and he completely does not want to talk about it and hence, I’m not even sure what type he has been diagnosed with.
We have been together for more than two years and he has been amazing, my biggest cheerleader and best friend. Upon his diagnosis, we had a fall out and this led to our break up but it was nothing really significant that caused the break up. I’ve pleaded, I’ve begged and he told me he needed space of which I understood but the character was just off, it was unlike him. He seemed so cold and it was just unlike him. I even started wondering if there was someone else.
He has been with me through the toughest times of my life and I feel like I’ve let him down cause I can’t be with him through this.
It’s almost two months since the break up, though he checks up on me almost everyday and I have a son from a previous relationship whom he still picks up on a daily basis to take to school. My heart hurts everytime when I see him and I feel like I have fallen more for him.
Another important part is, his dad passed away due to the same condition about 5years ago, due to some complications. He died in his arms and he still has not gotten over the loss.
I’ve been trying to understand him on my own, but couldn’t figure it out as I’ve never been around someone with any chronic illness before.
How do I deal with this? I’m not ready to give up on him, on us and I’ve fallen into depression too myself because of the turn of events.
Do i let him go or just keep waiting on him? How do I help him, because I feel so indebted. He has been my rock through the roughest times I’ve had to encounter.
He has only told his mother and myself about the condition and he refuses for us to talk about it or to tell anyone about it. I had told his cousin about it so that he may be checking up on him since we’ve broken up and when he found out, he got so angry with me, said unpleasant things and even cried. That’s when I felt like I needed to learn more about diabetes, if it could be the reason of him acting out of character or simply fell out of love for me of which he said he still loves me.
Please advise me
