Hi there I am a 26 yr old woman from India, in love with a T1. My family is SOOO against it..No one is ready to support me..They keep telling me scary stories about diabetes, how it is a curse etc etc My mum especially ever since I have told her about my boyfriend, has turned to the astrologers for divine intervention. I did convince her to visit a diabetologist & seek advice & surprise, surprise, even the doc advised against it terming it as something which is 'abnormal' & said in case you have a choice then go for it. My maternal uncle, who is himself a bigshot cardiologist in India, also told my mum to avoid it.. I am so alone & shocked, if this is the attitude of the doctors then I really dont blame the ignorant people for thinking as they do. Now i do understand that if diabetes can have serious complications if not managed well, but if managed well then?? Or is there no way to manage it?? Btw this guy i am raving & ranting about is really really the most wonderful man I have ever met although my mum rubbishes it as nothing but "infatuation".. God, i really dont know what to do..am so TORN..
