I have wondered, since you were diagnosed with diabetes, has your diagnosis affected your relationships such as marriage, friendships, parents, siblings, significant others, etc.?
For me, my diagnosis really scared my wife and daughter. Both immediately went out and joined a gym and work out swimming and walking almost every day. My mother went out and bought a book on diabetes and drove me crazy for a few weeks calling me EVERY DAY and asking me what my blood sugar was. I finally had to ask her to back off and let me handle it. My friends were totally cool. A few of them are diabetics and the ones who are not, nothing changed.
Anyhow, what is your story?
