As I look back to previous relationships, there is one partner who always seemed to be part of every relationship. Regardless of where I went, or what I did, he was part of the relationship. He would wait until just the right moment to upset the ones I loved, and even ruin my relationships, so he would have all my attention.
It is a complicated relationship. So, my partner, my friend, the elephant in the room was my diabetes. If you make diabetes an enemy instead of a friend, anger and frustration tend to follow.
When I was young, I resisted taking care of my diabetes, causing lot’s of problems. Later in life, I started realizing that if I took care of my friend diabetes, he would leave me alone sometimes. The more attention I gave him, the less time required to manage my diabetes and the more time I had to spend with loved ones.
Our inner dialogue is a relationship with ourselves. Here is the interesting part diabetes creates an internal voice that constantly interrupts us. The voice becomes another person in the relationship, and if both partners don’t agree to take care of diabetes, it can destroy your relationship.
Arguments may come down to miscommunication caused by diabetes or the interruptive inner voice of diabetes that hinders listening. Learning how to quiet your inner dialogue when you sit down to talk to anyone is imperative, because if you don’t, things get complicated. You can be doing everything right when listening to your partner but then you go low, and that pesky inner voice distracts you. What you do next can negatively impact your relationship or bring you and your partner closer together.
