Type 3 (husband to a Type 1) for 6 years
I am married to an incredible man, Jaim Zuber is my spouse. Although not always easy, T3’s (friends, family, partners) of those of us with diabetes have big shoes to fill, helping give us support and strength when diabetes is throwing one of it’s tantrums. That support came in the form of this quote one early day in September this year when we were on vacation on the North Shore.
I was rattling on about my diabetes and the frustrations it was causing me one morning when he shared the above wisdom. I loved it in it’s simplicity and truth. Right then and there I made him write it down, saying it was perfect for D-Quote! 🙂 I love my husband and the support and encouragement he provides– it is a big part of coping with this condition day in and day out. Here is a BIG thanks to all of the T3’s in our lives never forgetting to put a smile on our face when we need it most. I love you sweetie! <3
