My name is Derek. I am the spouse of a T1 wife. She was dx at 4 and is now 32. We have been together for 4 years now and married for 1.5 years. I came into this relationship with out a good understanding of T1 at all, even with a career in the medical field. I soon realized what a 24 hour love affair we had together and with her diabetes. There have been good times and bad. Mostly good, if it wasn't for the retinopathy/glaucoma. We are expecting our first child in 6 weeks. A1c of 5.6 for the last 4 months due to 12 am,2 am, 4 am, 6 am bs checks at night. Everything is healthy with our soon to be son. I just thought I would introduce myself and a little about my wife and my life. I look forward to offering my advice and receiving from you pro spouses and caregivers out there. Cheers!
