I'm new here so I thought I'd post a little intro about myself.
I'm a 24 year old library tech, and I've been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years. He was diagnosed with T1 the first year we were together, when he was 20.
I've tried to be supportive, and we adjusted our eating habits a lot in that first year, but then we sort of fell into a rut. This past year he's been having a harder time keeping himself regulated, and he's beginning to have health problems because of it. I've tried looking for doctors, and we do finally have both a family doctor (only took me 3 years to find one :/) and an endo for him. The problem is that our FD knows next to nothing about D, and the endo is almost impossible to see, so my BF is having a really hard time finding anyone to give him day-to-day practical advice.
Once he opened up to me about how much trouble he was having a lot of things made more sense to me. Now I'm trying to educate myself more about this disease and the things I can do to make it easier on him.
So far I've gotten a really warm welcome (I can't believe how many people have commented on my page!) so I thought I'd introduce myself and join some groups.
