I've often wanted to date someone whose a T1 Diabetic because then I wouldn't be alone. I have always felt alone ever since diagnosis. Then I went through the whole "What if my kid gets Diabetes?! What did I GIVE them. What did my partner give them!?" Because my father was a T2 Diabetic, [I used to give him his shots, p r i c k his finger, because I was wanting to learn all about Diabetes at the age of 4 - 10, he passed away from cancer when I was 11.] his Biological father was a T1 Diabetic there's the thoughts that in the future my brother could become a Diabetic since it runs in the family. My father's aunt and cousin are Diabetics, and my father's step-mother was a Diabetic. I've lived with ENOUGH Diabetes in my 25 years, that I want freedom! I don't want to have to be tied down to someone who has the illness I have when I'm tied down to it myself. Granted, I don't let it stop me because I've been through so much in 25 years I've fought my way into this world, and I will fight my way out with a huge bang I just want to live a happy life in a loving relationship with someone who will accept me for me, and not because I have D. Because we'd have something "in common" rather then the personalities and love. Now, if a partner came along down the road and I found out they were a T1 and we connected so well that D wasn't the whole conversation? Then sure, can't control who we love, but we can control our illnesses, and I am controlling it now, by not even dating, going on with life, and just being me.
