since i've been home in kennewick with PLENTY of spare time, i've logged quite a few hours with my naughty Mac doing research on diabetes.
the disease that runs our home.
brandon's had so many "episodes" this past year and i'm needing some answers.
or maybe both.
ok- here's the deal.
on top of all the obvious medical stresses, i've been frustrated with brandon for what i thought were all undiabetic reasons:
-constant lack of energy
-impossible to get out of bed in the morning
-rarely in a good mood in the morning
-lack of excitement
-refusal to grow his hair out
these, for the most part, are all symptoms that fellow Type 1 users experience.
so does this mean my cute little boyfriend that i met in a sociology class at UVSC 12 years ago that use to jump out of bed with a "cease the day" attitude is still in that body bound by the relentless disease?
yes!! i think so!! and i'm going to get to the bottom of it.
first thing to research: The Guardian Real Time Glucose Monitoring System.
will his insurance cover it?
will it actually help level out his highs and lows (unlike the pump)?
will he see how thick and amazing his dark hair is and try a longer style for a change?
all things to look into starting monday.
wish us luck.
i'm ready to scissor kick this thing in the knee cap.
ps- i'm dying to get to know ANYONE married to a diabetic.
if you are one, or know of someone, please let me know.
pps- don't you think 25 years with the same haircut is way too long?
