Excited to see this guy in less than a week ❤️!!!
There’s a lot of research on support networks and diabetes management, and I feel lucky to have someone who encourages me to communicate my needs. Living with #t1d
is not exactly easy and can place a huge amount of stress on both the person living with type 1 and on their partner. Relationships though incredible, take work and compromise. I’ve never been great at communicating my needs when it comes to my disease, but after over three years with this guy, I’m slowly becoming better at it.
For those of you with partners with #t1d
, What to do when your partner has diabetes: A Survival Guide by @lorstiehl
is an entertaining and useful guide that starts with the scientific literature (yay!) and then includes a whole lot of amazing advice and anecdotes on everything from fear and anxiety to great sex.
