Will's Story

Perspectives
My story about diabetes certainly isn't a love story suited for Valentines Day, especially after more than 25 years of being set in my ways with my spouse. This was what actually what made her diagnosis that much more difficult. We were used to a lifestyle and eating habits that had to change as a result of her diagnosis, neither of which I was very fond of. Sugar and sweets taste great until you're faced with diabetes and you realize it's a life or death choice.

Anne's Story

Perspectives

Sarah has lived with diabetes for 35 years, and we have been together for 20 of them. I didn't know very much about diabetes when we met in graduate school. Once in a while she would grab some apple juice and we'd wait a few minutes before taking a walk, or she'd refill her insulin pump while we were studying, but we didn't have long discussions about it.
