Ashley – “The Delicate Balance”
Ashley is a San Diego based healthcare consultant, the mother of two children and the wife of a Type 1 diabetic. As she states, her blog is not meant to “vent, blame or ridicule” her husband, but rather as a way to share her experiences with others in order to discover new ways to approach the everyday challenges that diabetes can bring. Her husband Tony, who is from Barcelona, was diagnosed in his early 30s and has been battling the disease for more than a decade. Visit Ashley’s Blog: “The Delicate Balance”.

Let’s Talk About Sex….
Listen, I’m as private about my sex life as the next person… it’s taken me a long time to blog about it because it’s something I don’t feel needs to be shared widely on a regular basis!  However, lately I’ve realized that there just isn’t enough out there that speaks to some of the… Read More

Seeing lows from other side
I recently stumbled upon a video on YouTube that shows a man in the throes of a low blood sugar whose wife and daughter are trying to help him come back up … it was interesting to say the least.  You can see it here:   http://youtu.be/pC_0CI9jV6A  My husband Tony (who has type… Read More

Love How This Girl is Taking On The TSA!
I stumbled upon this video this morning of a 16-year old girl who is taking on the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) about their lack of knowledge of how insulin pumps are affected by the full-body scanners at the airport:  I am SO happy to see this getting some press.  The… Read More

A Chance to Connect With Others Who “Get It”
I had the absolute pleasure of attending the “Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD)” Conference here in San Diego this past weekend.  It’s in its 9th year, and was my fourth time attending.  It is a great, empowering day for people to learn more and connect with others around diabetes,… Read More

Casualty of Diabetes: Silliness
In the 15 years since my husband Tony developed type 1 diabetes, there have been many ways that the disease has infiltrated and affected our lives.  Most of these things have been obvious, and include much of what I’ve shared in this blog … the anxieties, the work it takes to maintain… Read More

Taking the Plunge
Since we have diabetes in the family, my husband and I have decided to take our two children, ages 4 and 9, to the TrialNet event here in San Diego tomorrow, where they will be screened for the antibodies responsible for the development of type 1. Not only will we be contributing to a very… Read More

How Do Our Spouses w/ Diabetes Feel About Us?
I just stumbled across this video from dLife, where PWDs are interviewed about how they feel about their spouse’s (usually well-meaning) intervention into their daily diabetes management. I find it really interesting! I think that often our spouses are not necessarily that forth-coming with how… Read More

Rude Awakening
There’s nothing that snaps you awake at 3am quite as quickly as discovering that your spouse / partner / loved one with diabetes is in the throes of a serious low.   It happened to us just the other night. For some reason I woke up at 3am, and in attempting to get my husband to move over (he… Read More

How is living with your partner’s diabetes for YOU? Tell us…
Since I’ve been receiving some wonderful comments and email from the posts that I’ve put out here on my experiences of living with someone with type 1, I thought I’d ask you all to share some of your experiences too.  Although we know that we are not alone in living with someone with diabetes,… Read More

Lows, lows, lows…
Well, it happened again today. One of those scary low blood sugars in my husband when I least expected it. This was a bad one – I am lucky to say that in our 12 years of dealing with his diabetes (since he was diagnosed), I’ve only really dealt with a handful of “serious” lows… the kind that… Read More

Diabetes-Related Anxiety #1: Driving
I think that in this daily journey of living with a PWD, one of the hardest things for me to manage my anxiety around is driving. It seems like such a small thing, right? It is so much a part of our daily lives (especially here in Southern California!), something that we must do, something that… Read More

When Conflict Catches You By Surprise
In all honesty, things have been going pretty well with both my husband and with his diabetes. He recently had a check-up with his Endo, and even though he was afraid otherwise (due to high-levels of stress at his job and subsequent blood sugar highs every day) his A1c was great, all numbers fine….

Fact of Life #5: Denial (No, not theirs, yours!)
People talk a lot about “denial” when they talk about diabetes… about how the PWD in their life doesn’t take care of themselves, how they pretend the diabetes doesn’t exist, how they do whatever they want around their disease… and so on, and so on. We’ve heard it – and talked about it, with… Read More

Fact of Life #4: Diabetes Never Takes a Vacation!
Well, we’re back from a wonderful 3 week trip to Spain… Since my husband Tony is from Barcelona, we went over to visit family and to enjoy the Balearic Islands a little bit. For the most part, it was idyllic … sun, the sea, warm air, salt, the food, the people… glorious. And it would have… Read More

“Fact of Life” #3: You’ve Got to be a Team Player
Diabetes is not something that any of us signs up for. Not our spouse/loved one, not us. This can be particularly true for those of us whose partner developed the disease during our relationship, and it comes as a complete surprise. However, even if we went into the relationship knowing that our… Read More

“Fact of Life” #2: Anxiety
What’s the one thing that all of us who are partnered with someone with diabetes have in common? We are all anxious. It varies by degree, but it is a common strain that runs beneath many a calm, functional exterior. It can be related to fear of lows, anxiety around complications or co-existing… Read More

“Fact of Life” #1: Blood Sugar Lows
One of the hardest things for people who love someone with type 1 diabetes is dealing with the blood sugar lows that happen on a fairly regular basis. Over time we may get used to them, and get more competent at helping our loved one come back to normal levels more quickly. We also become experts… Read More
