Hi. Looking for a sympathetic ear and some advice.
I have a new “boyfriend” (we’re both in our early 50s) and I was telling him about when I was first diagnosed with diabetes in 1992. He was surprised that I had been immediately hospitalized and couldn’t understand the need to be in hospital. (Arg! My life belittled in one sentence!) I tried to explain that many tests had to be done to first verify the diagnosis, then to check to see if any damage had been done from having high blood sugar for who knows how long.
I don’t think he was convinced.
What else can I say? Any good links?
Thank you. I really like this new guy and he’s open and does have a curious mind so I think there’s hope for him!
