I know this following post may seem offensive to individuals living with diabetes. I am in no way trying to offend anyone, my father has type II and my grandfather passed away from type II because there was little research on how to manage it back then. I love my father dearly, never got to meet my grandfather… I may even be at risk for getting it later in my life, so I don't mean anything harmful about this post. But I am so confused right now because I met a guy with diabetes type I and I don't know if I should continue with the relationship. He is a great guy and cares about me a great deal. I like him a lot but I am seriously considering breaking up with him because I am not sure what specific future implications diabetes will have on our future family's relationship. I know that if I married someone and then found out that he had diabetes later on I would NEVER end my marriage because of it, but I am thinking if I haven't committed myself to him yet…should I consider ending the relationship.
I'd like to hear from those either in relationships, or married and both from those who have it or are married/relationship with some that has it. Please don't take offense to this question, I am just trying to be responsible for myself, my boyfriend (because I know he needs someone supportive), and my future children.
