Hi All- My dh has been T1 for nearly 35 years. He has had many, many complications (3X bypass, vitrectomies, frozen shoulder, protein in urine, etc, etc, etc...). He has been on the pump for about 8 years and is in the process of getting a CGMS. We are always chasing the newest technology to make management of this disease easier. I have no problem with that at all. What I have a problem with is the utter lack of motivation, desire, and sometimes even the knowledge on how to seriously control the disease. It is maddening. You would think that at least the heart attack and 3X bypass would wake him up. When he had the cardiac problems in May of this year our youngest son was 10 weeks old! What man wants their 32 year old wife and 3 young sons (now 6, 3, and almost 8 months) to relive that experience? If he doesn't get in control we are going to end up back in the same situation or worse. He is irritable, moody, mopey, and generally zero fun to be around these days. However, the straw that broke the camel's back (cliche I know!) is that when *I* was filling out all of the paperwork for the CGMS I had to transfer all of this BSL for the meter to a log. I think that was one of the most sad and pitiful exercises I have ever performed. BSLs all over the place from 37 to 556. Plus, he assures me that every night he checks his BSL before bed, but I have learned he has been lying in that less than a third of the time in the past 2 months has he actually done that. Mind you, we even had a middle of the night 911 call for hypoglycemia in that time period! I know he wants the CGMS to minimize his responsibilities in dealing with the disease, and I can understand that, but at the end of the day the technology is not going to save him. However, he views it so differently. It is never his 'fault,' he is OOC. He is sick, tired, stressed, busy, etc....Plus, he was addicted to nicotine and has completely stopped that since the 3X bypass which has been about the only positive step forward. I don't want to minimize that, but it was/is only the first step of many. I don't really want to monitor his every move b/c I am not his mother. Plus, I know that all that is going to accomplish is create more arguments regarding my expectations versus his. It is definitely a lose-lose situation. It really is sad b/c we have had a great marriage, but I think his utter disregard for his health is selfish and puts the happiness and emotional health of our boys in serious peril. Nevermind me, which is not my primary concern. Ugh, sorry this is so long, but is there anyone out their who can commisirate with me?
