Hi, Sandra, welcome to the group. Husbands can be helpful or not. Education is the key in our case. My husband attended classes with me in the beginning. He has knowledge and understands what is going on. Again welcome. Nancy

Hi Sandra.  I hope you will post often.  You didn't say if your type 1 or type 2.  I think maybe men are clueless most of the time about food and diabetes and such.  IT helps just to get the information yourself and tell him about it and make sure you have his attention when you do.  My decreased husband looked after me but he didn't know a thing.  He just was protective.  My companion now is also diabetic. *sigh*

You will find some nice people on this forum if you put yourself out there with questions, sharings, and please research everything you can find on dLife.  It does make a difference.

Again, welcome!

Hi Sandra. Welcome to dLife. I think you'll find the Blood Sugar Management section of the website helpful. Keep us posted on your progress!

Hi!  My name is Sandra.  I was diagnosed probably two years ago, and have just recently been trying to keep my numbers low.  The problem is I have no friends, and my husband is oblivious to my needs.  He is coming around I think.  Anyway, this site seems very interesting to me.  I am fairly new to the computer, and very new to this introducing myself thing.  Anyone who has advice or whatever, I'm here to listen(or read ).
