Will diabetes make changes in our family life?

Only about as many changes as moving a hippopotamus into the living room. Each looms large on the scene, can't be ignored, has to be worked around, demands a great deal of time and trouble and care; and you never stop wishing that someone would take the damned thing away.

But strangely enough, you can get used to anything, be it hippopotamus or diabetes. Eventually when people express shock and concern, "Oh, you have a hippopotamus in your living room!" (Or, "Oh, your child, husband, or wife has diabetes!") "How terrible!" you're surprised they even mention it as an oddity or a problem. It's just what is, & part of your life and you're living with it.
