I feel bad for you both!! Very frustrating to watch someone "pretend" they arent diabetic when you know that he is going to pay a very high price for his actions.
I know 2 people who lost their lives to diabetes complications just because they wouldnt give up their alcohol consumption, both had damaged their kidneys (that was the main damage at that time) one took his life while on a waiting list for a kidney transplant..he was 31 The other was also on an organ transplant list for his kidney damage too, but died before that could happen...he was 33
Shell, is there a possibility that he is suffering from depression...therefore, not really caring at this time about managing his diabetes? When people are affected at a young age with this disease, I really think they live in denial for a long time..not all of them...but alot...and it seems that it is men who are so stubborn. Has your hubby tried talking to him? It has to be very hard on your everyday life, I'm sorry you are going through this.
Like Lanie suggested...would be helpful if he would just peek into the forum here...but....I dont know..sounds like that would be near impossible for you to get him to do
Gentle hugs, Diane
