I’m new here and in search of support as a partner to someone with T1D. I also, separately, suffer from PTSD and anxiety. I need an outlet for discussing my fears and pain but don’t want to burden my partner who is already dealing with the condition. If anyone has advice on managing the stress and coping with the constant anxiety about things going awry, I’d greatly appreciate it!
Also, when my partner goes low, they become somewhat irrational (understandably, given what it is). Does anyone have experience with helping people in that state relax, sit down (so they don’t fall/get injured), and ingest sugar quickly?
I know I just through a lot out there and am so so grateful to anyone willing to share thoughts and experiences!
