I have recently entered a new relationship with a man that I care a lot about. I have shared some information with him about my T1 diabetes but at this point I need some advice... I was diagnosed just over a year ago and up until now I have not been in a relationship or had to share all this information with someone I am pursueing. So far he has asked some questions because he does want to learn and be able to help me in any situation. When he does ask, I tend go into great detail and confuse him. Should I get him a book? Is there one out there titled My Girlfriend Is Diabetic-What do I need to know? :)
Another concern of mine is that I will make too much of a big deal over the fact that I have it. I do not want him to feel like he is responsible for too much. Due to the fact that we are in an early dating stage we go out to eat a lot and have a drink or two... my BG has gone low on two occasions where I needed him to fetch OJ.
I would appreciate any advice as to how to go about the situation.
