What are your thoughts on taking a diabetes education class for yourself and your loved one? Is it necessary for him to know the ins and outs of your disease, just as you do? Or is the “overview” of D good enough to get him by?
I’ve been considering signing up for a class, or setting up an appointment with my endo, to bring in my fiance (10 years) and have him learn things like dosages, reactions, etc. He currently knows the basics… like when I’m grumpy, sometimes I’m too high. Or when I’m sleepy, sometimes I’m too low.
But a part of me thinks that he should know a more in depth understanding.
I guess I’m worried that if I am asleep, and really low, that he won’t know the signs that I’m actually near-coma and NOT just sleepy. I know it’s hard to describe and hard to understand… but, I’m just getting concerned. And maybe it won’t feel like I’m repeating myself so much about my dosages and reactions if maybe he went to a short class environment and took notes? I don’t know…
And I also think it might help me to re-learn some things that maybe I’ve forgotten or set aside over the past 11 years coping.
