Someone else posted about dating a diabetic and meeting at camp, I have the same story!
I went to a diabetes summer YMCA camp, and met someone when I was 13-14. In highschool, we ended up dating and having a long distance relationship and at the time it was nice and convient because I had someone to talk to if I needed to vent about my diabetes...
I won't get into the whole history of the relationship, but we ended up living together for a little bit during college, and he ended up being the diabetic I NEVER wanted to be...he never took his insulin, and when he did it wasn't the correct way or reason. Consistantly kept sugars high, and had a horrible diet...I fell into his trap for a little bit, and then I just ended it! The relationship went down the shoot for a laundry list of reasons, and one of them being- he was a horrible diabetic. I couldn't live with someone who didn't care about their body or what they were doing to it....I moved home during college and transferred schools...I was young and dumb during those two years while with him.
But, I have said this in my previous posts on other forums, I date a paramedic- best care and treatment I could ever recieve ;-) .... Its fun, he loves putting my stuff together for my pump every 3-4 days...or if I need a random shot, he wants to draw it up--- (after doing it for ten years it loses its excitment doesn't it? lol) He even tried putting in a set (the same set I use for my pump) I inserted it onto his belly, so he could realize what it feels like...its fun and cute.
Moral of the story--- date who ever makes you happy and treats you the best--- wether they are diabetic or not, do whats best for you :-)
