I wish that my husband would get educated along with me on Diabetes. That would sure solve allot of our misinformations and confusion. I have been educating myself, when I don't know what to do. I either call my Dr. office and they get back to me. I follow their advice. Then I let my husband know what they say. We both still struggle when it comes to a diabetics diet. He doesn't understand allot about carbs. I try to tell him, that he needs to buy more of this or that. Sometime's it gets so irritating with him. Because he tends to still buy unhealthy foods. Little of what healthy foods that I can eat. Its very discouraging to me. Often times I have to remind him that I am running low on insulin. That is a biggy. I need that. I can't go without it. I wish he would just understand that, and not find out from the the Dr. in a mean way, that I cannot be off of insulin at anytime. It gets down to the point where if my numbers are high enough that I have to go to the ER and be admitted. Then my husband is good about my insulin for a while. Than its back to the same thing. It is very annoying. This is partly why I wish I had a job, so I can keep up on my own meds. Its not easy. This isn't something that can be ignored.
