How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

I thank them with words. I am very grateful that my son and hubby are so in sinc with my needs. My son rarely ever goes for white sugar, he uses stevia in his coffee and teas like me. When I have hypoglycemic momemted both Payden and my hubby Chris are so on top of things. I am very lucky <3 <3

I guess I never really thought about it. I radically changed my diet and got off the meds. I did it obviously for me (maybe that sounds selfish) but I also realize I am fighting the monster for them, so I can be here for them as long as I can. I do notice their support. Someone may offer me something to eat that is on my no-no list. When I thank them and politely decline, they don’t push it. So I know they’re supporting what I am doing.

Support is great, I don't think about my condition at all, I just enjoy myself and eat the goodies in moderation when we are dining out. When visiting them they cook healthy dishes enjoyed by everyone.

My family are all aware of diabetes. My son was diagnosed two days before he was 21 which put a bit of a downer on his celebrations he is now 52 married with 2 grown up girls. In the mean time I was diagnosed type 2 twenty years ago it made no difference to my life as sugar didn’t feature greatly in our lives. My sister in law was diagnosed 6 years ago and my daughter in law became diabetic after a hysterectomy operation. So I have 4 households in family diabetic 2 blood related and 2 not blood. As I say diabetes is just accepted as normal most products bought are sugar free in all households.
