Well...nothing has changed with him. I think everything has changed or is changing with me! I had the funniest experience that I want to share. I used to work in this town 35 years ago and I had lunch with some of the gals I used to work with. Over time, my name has gotten shorter. Example: Margaret, Margie, Marge. (not my name, but you get the point!) This gal knew me with my earlies name and a different surname and had read about me in an art newsletter with my shortened name and current surname and had no idea that I was the same person!!! So I've decided to go back to using the name that I used when I lived here before.
Then I went to a garage sale one day and I just knew that I knew the woman hosting it. But I couldn't make the connection. 3 weeks later I was going through old photos and realized she had been my son's babysitter 30 years ago. I took the photos and knocked on her door and we just had a great reunion!!!
I have the time - and the energy - to renew old friendships. That's been wonderful!!!
There have been some comments in the last month and I'd like to share them. Day by Day wrote this:
Well, you are definitely NOT alone!!! While I've had a year off, I still go through the emotions every day. I doubt it ever ends, even after the spouse dies. I know that my hubby is lying in bed all day long at his dad's, watching TV. I know he is not eating right at all. But he's there and I'm here and I'm doing so much better at taking care of me. And because of that, I'm feeling better than I have in the last 4 years!!!
've read your blog for quite a while now. I live with a diabetic partner too, so that's how I started reading it. Just wanted to say that I am very happy that you have found peace and a life for yourself!
Well, Jane, I do not know you, but I'm sure our lives are on similar paths if you read this blog. And because of that, I may know you better than those who know you! LOL!!! I guess what I'm saying is that wives of non-compliant diabetics are all sisters on some level. And these blogs do help.
Here's to all of us - may we have a great month!
