I have a question for anyone who’d like to answer…
I know I can’t be the only person with this issue, as I’ve had diabetes for a little over four years and have read here about people who have had it so much longer.
I’m wondering, does anyone have people that they know… friends, acquaintances, relatives, associates… or whatever their relationship may be… who’s level of compassion toward your diabetes changes, if your relationship changes? Or if their mood changes? And if so, how do you deal with this?
For example, if you are in a romantic relationship with them, and you have a bad situation, like an unexpected low that requires their help, they are extremely compassionate and helpful… but if the relationship changes, and say now it’s your ex… are they less compassionate, but still helpful?
Or another example, if the person is in a bad mood, are they less compassionate, but still helpful? Almost like they know they’re doing the right thing by being helpful, but, it’s like almost an inconvenience?
I must say… I really hate being an inconvenience to anyone. I do appreciate any help I do receive, but, I do make a note of who changes based on mood.
