First of all of I don't think Kate would have any problem with the little things that diabetes does to me. I wake up a half hour earlier than I should so that I can have a healthy breakfast and be ready for the day that is ahead. I could see her doing this everyday, I think hard work is one of the traits that we share and honestly she is a much harder worker then I could ever be. I don't believe I would get up with her however, I would probably stay asleep and get up a bit later. I believe that I would encourage and support any athletic endeavor that she would want to tackle. I like to see her succeed, she works her butt off and I believe the same would hold true if she had diabetes.
I believe I would not be as laid back as I am if Kate had diabetes. I know that she worries constantly and I believe I would do the same. I can't imagine what it is like waking up at 3am hearing your spouse in the kitchen with a low blood sugar, I would probably go crazy if her CGM beeped as much as mine does in the night. I would probably run and grab food whenever I heard her CGM.
I think everyone gets the idea, I honestly don't know what I would do. Writing this blog has opened my eyes to how much of an ass I can be and how I should do more of the little things to be a better diabetic. I feel very lucky that I have one of the best caregivers, I need to remember that.
