"Your new guy had a wife who died after many years of suffering from severe diabetic complications. You wonder if he will still want to be with you when he finds out that you have type 2 diabetes too."
"It’s not that straightforward to be the wife of someone with type 2 diabetes. He will sometimes resent the interference, saying: 'Mind your business. I’ll take care of it.' Other times he will simply shut down, saying: 'I don’t want to talk about it.'"
The letters in this book have been written by people with type 2 diabetes and edited by Ellyn Spragins. The views and opinions expressed are not representative of Novo Nordisk and should not be considered as treatment advice.
