I actually had a question though. It sounds like you're doing a great job managing his illness but how is he doing? You mentioned he gave himself too much after having a couple beers.... Please know I'm not trying to make any judgements and I don't know enough about diabetes to know if this is a risky behavior or not but is he taking all the precautions he should be taking-because it sounds like you're taking on a huge burden. I know the last thing you want to do is share any of your stress with him but when he's feeling better do you think it would help you to share with him how you feel and how scared and worried it makes you? Guys seem to internalize differently and he may have no idea how much this is affecting you and it may help him make different choices-or remember to call and check in when he's been out for a while or you haven't spoken.

He's lucky to have the love of a woman like you and you are an amazing person to overcome some of your fears (needles....yuck!).

We took a 6 pack over to his friends. I had 1 and he had the other 5 from about 330 to 830. My understanding is that alcohol can lower sugar but the carbs in beer can raise it, so the exchange of carbs + alcohol + insulin is a little hard to calculate and it changes for every different type of beer. It was a miscalculation.

Honestly, I'm not overwhelmed with him hardly ever. I think a little of the worrying and calling is because I don't get to see him as much as I did other people I dated. Before him, I only worked part time and went to school full time. Now I'm working full time on a 2nd shift job, going to school part time, and running a business. He works 45-50 hours/week on a 1st shift job.

Wow Crystal-sounds like you guys are doing everything right. I didn't mean to come across harsh or anything, I was just curious from the info in your first post. Work and school and running a business must be brutal...and overtime like that for anybody would be stressful on the body. I sure wish you both the best and again-kudos to you for all that you're doing :-)

I didn't take it like that at all. If you didn't notice, I posted my original post at 230 am. I'm sure I could have said some things better!

I prioritize, that's how I manage.
1. Family
2. School
3. Business
4. Work
5. Everything else

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
