Happy New Year to all my readers

Wishing you ALL a wonderful new year.  To all of "us" who are spouses of diabetics (wives and husbands alike), and also to those of you who are diabetic, but read my blog anyway.  Many thanks to all of you who have empathized with me on these "pages," and also shared your insight.  As always, you have helped me maintain my sanity through another difficult year!  Hopefully, I have done likewise for some of you.  May we all work toward and hope for a better year . . .



  1. Happy New Year! Here's to a great 2012 and beyond!

  2. Happy New Year to you as well. Your blog helped me to find the courage to leave my bad relationship (I'm the previous poster who commented on kayaking to escape my type 1 wife). One of the major things I struggled with was a guilt of thinking that I was leaving my wife because she had diabetes. The truth of the matter was I left my wife because of her constantly bad attitude. Not everyone who has type 1 acts a horrible as she did and then there are others who don't have diabetes who do behave badly. Me leaving her had absolutely nothing to do with her diabetes and everything to do with her behavior for which she declined to take responsibility for. I wish her the best of luck and hope she can turn her negative attitude around and enjoy life.

    Keep up your blog as it seems like a good place for you to vent and others to feel not so alone.
