I've been having a tough time with my family lately. They don't talk to me about diabetes (mine or in general). They say they've researched it but say ignorant things like my mom telling me I caused my diabetes. If I do try to talk about it they either get annoyed (to quote one sibling- "diabetes is all you talk about"), or angry (getting yelled at by another when I was low because I was confused when she was trying to talk to me). One sibling told me that people live with diabetes every day and are fine. Her excuse for not talking about it. They're ignoring the serious side and the facts of the disease. I want them to understand that this is a scary thing that affects my life in every way but I really think they just don't care.
I know other people have had to have problems with lack of support at times too. How do you deal with it? Do I fight it out with my family or just not talk to them about my diabetes? I don't think I'm ever going to get through to them but how can I maintain a relationship with my family when I feel like my health doesn't matter to them? I'm trying to get my mom to go to a diabetes educator but I know my siblings wouldn't ever go.
