So, I must correct that and give them the correct information and basically reteach them what there is to know about living with type 1. My biggest concern has to be the fear of having a seizure while I am with the other person.
I think that would be scary for both of us, and I wouldn’t want anyone to have to see that. When it comes to dating, there are a few main points I always keep in mind that make for some pretty smooth sailing.
Socializing, friends, and close relationships are very important to anyone – with or without diabetes.
Telling dates about your diabetes isn’t always easy, and how and when you tell them is a personal decision. I have never been shy about living with diabetes, and am always happy to talk about it with anyone who will listen.
In my eyes, there is no reason to hold anything back and I want to be very open with the other person.
