Hello. My name is Cheri. My husband has been a type I diabetic for over 40 years. We have been married 25 years, mostly good. However, in the last few years (like many people) we have experienced much financial pain. Now, whenever my husband starts to have a reaction, I react with some low level abuse; yes, hitting. I don't know what to do. I can no longer just watch him flame himself into a dangerously low blood sugar level; I try constantly to catch him and ask him to test himself, etc. and take some juice, etc. but many times he is too far gone. And I am very angry. Can anyone give me some helpful suggestions as to how I can better cope and respond?
