Another Wife

Today I received a response from yet another DW -- Welcome (I think!)
Here is what she said -- go to her post if you are reading this and give her support also!

You and DW have been a God send in a really trying time. You showed me that I am allowed to feel how I feel. I am that young newly wed that really didn't know what it would be like to live with diabetes. You have inspired me to write my own blog about living with a compliant diabetic. It is still hard and there are still issues. If you would like to check it out it is The only difference is my husband knows about mine and has the link. The first time he read it he cried. He gets to see both the good and the bad that I go through with him. Thank You!

I am glad that we can help -- you know its really a shame that the "major" diabetes organizations refuse to recognize us and don't want to help us
believe me I have tried -- I have called, I have written, I have emailed, you name it
they don't want to hear about what a hard time we have had

If you are a mom and have a diabetic kid, everyone can feel sorry for you
Clearly its your job to take care of your kid
when its your husband its so much more complicated, right?

You are supposed to take care of him -- my gosh if someone is sick, you help, right?
but you are not supposed to be his mom either!

This is not the 1950's!

And I was raised in the 1960's, talk about a confusing time!

And to end this, I wish you (and all the other DW's) the best of luck
I hope he and you can always talk to each other
You will probably always go through good times and bad
but if you can share, then in the end you will be able to survive
Life is hard for everyone -- we just have different burdens
Ours is diabetic husbands (and sometimes other junk)
but we carry on

As always, I wish everyone a good night of sleep
because with plenty of rest, we can handle almost anything
after all we are women!!!
