Like "It really does! My hsband and I have been together for 11 years, and married 5 years. We have 4 children together (one of them eight months ago). I was diagnosed 2 weeks before our wedding. Now I feel like he feels trapped. I have had 12 or more hospital stays in the last 5 years(three of them to make sure th baby was okay due to sugars). Our oldest is going into jr. high. The disease seems to be taking a bigger toll on her. My husband works 6 or 7 days a week. He still goes to bed before I do and wakes up atleast 2 hours after I do. But he is not the one who helps me out, she is. She seems to be growing up too quick, and that makes me resent him. I am going through the biggest rollercoaster of my life, with sugars and emotions out of control sometimes, and it feels like my only assistance comes from an 11 year old girl. I am not working, and don't have insurance. So anytime I need any supplies or specific foods, I need to give an itemized list to get money. I feel guilty for taking a nap on one of his rare days off, bacause he isn't here very much(four kids is alot to handle), or I just miss him. I guess each situation is different. If you have complete support it can bring a family closer, but if you don't it can tear a family apart.. "
