Recently my sister was diagnosed with Juvenille Diabetes. She's 16 and very sensitive. I'm assuming she hasn't accepted her situation yet and I find it difficult talk to her about it. Now every time we (the rest of us) sit down to eat or have something with sugar I can't help but feel bad and nor do I want to display my enjoyment in what I'm eating. Usually it doesn't take long and she leaves our presence but I don't blame her. She can't stand it that we feel sorry for her, but she feels so sorry for herself that there's not really a way to get her to really open up and talk about it and get it out of her system. Not sure if I'm looking for advice or not, but do any of you have someone in the family with an illness/disability/disease? and how do you deal with it personally and as a family?
