Sorry Sassy. This disease is hard enough as is:( I'm not married and my kids know better than to offer me such things and ask if they're unsure. I agree though. This should be a no-brainer. You just don't give a diabetic a bag of sugar, chocolate coated or not.
Just an idea. Most men I've known have a hard time shopping for us. Maybe if you buy a small diary type book and make it you wish book for him to look through. Jot down things you'd like to get as gifts.
Hope things get better for you! ~Ruby

Did anyone get non-supportive gifts from their loved ones like chocolate, sweets, cookies, etc? I got a bag of chocolate from my husband. While I know it's the thought, it feels like gifts like that should be an automatic no-brainer from people who are supposed to support and encourage us.
