Hey come on - they call you on you on your home phone - well it could go either way. Assuming the worst, if diabetes is present, there is no reason that it should affect your life in the slightest. Okay - you may have to carry a bar of chocloate in your handbag (why do women have to have so much stuff in their handbags- my wife has one and she can tell you what floor anything is on at any time - its like a shopping mall gone wrong - why do you have to carry so much?). Anyway, you will be able to put a chocloate bar in pocket number 300 (as you all have stacks of pockets in them) and keep it there. He will learn to recognise if not feeling too good as its not an instant wham - its a gradual decline. He would have a little kit thing that he will take with him - pricks his finger once a day- a tiny bit of blood ( which to us men is open surgery and gives us a need of band aid, sympathy, getting out of doing the dishes etc and a cold beer to recover) and a few seconds later - he gets a little thing that tells him if his blood sugar is low and if he needs a boost.
Its not - if it is diabetes - life threatening and even though the hospital wont tell you the results - and at the end of the day in my eyes, you are like my wife, entitled to whatever is on file you should know - you are there and having a wife that cares is worth more than anything. I would rather have the love of my wife than anything on earth - without her I am nothing and sure your husband feels the same way.
I know about 30 diabetics in my office and with my hobby - some work on computers, some are doctors and surgeons, one flies airplanes (I can fly) and it does not affect their lives at all.
The biggest loss to a man (as it would be to me ) would be the love of my wife ( the second biggest loss is on monday at 3.30 for me snip snip :-(- trying to smile through the knowledge that tonight I bought two bags of frozen peas to put on what will be the swollen area), so come on chuck, keep your chin up and whatever, the results, from here in the UK where I am about to head off for an early night, try to meditate and goto sleep - you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Wondering can an aethiest purchase insurance for acts of god and hoping he made you smile for a few seconds???
