First of all, I wanted to thank all of you who volunteered for my dissertation research. I really couldn’t have done it without you!
I wanted to update you and let you know I defended. Now I can share some of my cool findings!
— My sample was about 85% Type 1 folks. This was pretty cool and unexpected!
—When compared to a sample of U.S. adults who considered themselves healthy, there was no significant difference in relationships satisfaction among my sample and the comparison sample!
---- Participants with diabetes who reported sharing more information about their diagnosis with their partner also reported higher relationship satisfaction.
Those are the highlights. I am happy to answer any questions as well!
