Hi, I thought I would reach out and respond to your post because I’m a type 1, married, and have had some eye issues. I came into my relationship with my bf (later husband) after having diabetes for 15 years though. So, it wasn’t a new experience to go through after being married. No matter how much you try and explain it to him (whether he’s fully supportive or not) your husband won’t be able to relate to what you’re going through. Diabetes does play a part of your life 24/7 and fighting it can just make things more frustrating. I don’t expect my husband to understand what I’m going through and frankly he’s not the type of person who fawns over me so it’s something I deal with on my own, primarily. It’s also challenging because you can’t just look at a person and know they have diabetes, especially if they just take injections and aren’t on a pump. So it’s a visual thing too, I think. They don’t see it so they forget it’s there. Keep taking your vision seriously. My issues didn’t start creeping up until after I had my child. Some of it has healed, but not totally. I have ocular hypertension (just one of my eye issues) that is treated with an ocular steroid and that keeps my pressure readings in better range. Too high of pressure in the eyes can lead to glaucoma so it’s definitely important to keep that in check. I also have the retinopathy and have had swelling of the oedema, which was treated with steroid injections in the eye. Not fun. I take things one day at a time with diabetes and try to remain really flexible and open minded to adjusting things (insulin/diet/exercise) when needed to accommodate it. After having my child, I’ve had bad lows at night occasionally where my husband has had to wake me up out of them. Also not fun. We don’t take about it much, other then that he gets frustrated because it disturbs his sleep cycle. Yeah, I know. Thats why talking about the diabetes with him is kind of a lost cause. It definitely would be nice if he was a bit more open to trying to understand what I go through with it. I’ve just dealt with diabetes for so long on my own that’s it’s just how things are and I’ve accepted it. I’m an adult with a child and there’s no excuse for not looking out for myself, especially since I would like to be around for my daughter as she grows up. I know you can’t control everything that happens with diabetes but I just do what I can (maintaining a good A1c, going to appts, etc). If you think he’d be open to counseling, you could try that like another person suggested. I don’t know what the rest of your marriage is like. So ultimately that’s up to you. Anyway, take care of yourself because at the end of the day, you’re the only one who can do it. Feel free to reach out to me if you ever want to talk more.
