husband just diagnosed a moth ago. he was told he was pre diabetic 2+ years ago and did nothing about about. didnt exercise regularly, didnt eat right etc. his mother is even diabetic and was frequently reminding him to change to avoid. I am so angy that he let himself get to this point. We have 5 kids and it scares me to death that something will happen. It has made his cardiac labs thru the roof also. He is my best friend and I am supporting him/always will. I have changed cooking, given him space when needed..trying not to be the diabetic police! yet inside I am petrified, scared of the future, worried about things that could happen…anything that would not have us together for another 25 years as we always planned. I cry in my office at work so that i am calm at home. I can't share with my family members because he doesn't want to tell anyone except me/kids. He has never been able to finish anything he started. Right now I think he is enjoying the fodd tracking on Excel, making fun little spreadsheets etc, exercising with the guys from work, getting a nw monitor etc…but it won't last..he always goes back to old habits. He's lost and gained 50 lbs 3 times! Then what? I know this is his disease but iti is afamily problem. I know I need to stop whining and be thankful its not cancer or something worse. He is still with me and I want to keep it that way. But it is just sooo hard to be positive and not scared.
