Is there a section here that is directly related to educating and supporting spouses? My hubby is the best, and is really trying to support me. However, he's healthy as an ox and I don't think he really gets it…not for lack of trying though. Anyway, is there an area for spouses?

sounds like you do have a terrific hubby! My DH will write questions down if he can't go with me, so at least he's getting his questions answered that way.

I just thought that since we have this wonderful support for ourselves, maybe there was a need for support for the significant others in our life. A place for them to vent and ask questions without fear of retribution. To get support from other spouses/partners who are going through the same thing.

I have a good support system as my wife and daughter are also type2. We go together to the Dr and we keep track of our BG's. Dan

Having him go with you to the doctors will help also. My hubby always goes with me to all my doctor appointments.

he goes with me when he can. He's active duty Navy so he can't always get off of work to go. I am going to try to get him to go to the next appt at the end of the month. Let him ask his questions and get the answers directly from the doc. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

Is this area I really lucked out. My wife came with me to the doctor office to tell me about having pre-diabeates, and we eat the same diet. So there's not two types of food in the house. She does more reading of Books on the sublect. so she up on what I can have and not have.

The best thing you can do is talk to your hubby. Let him know how you are feeling good or bad. Have him read the same information you do. He won't always get it because he isn't going through what you are. But talking and telling him how you feel and are doing will help him better understand what you are going though. It is not easy because sometimes you feel you are hitting a brick wall. Just keep knocking on that brick wall and you will start to chip away at it. Also check out the discussions section other it may help you.
