I don’t share with either family or a healthcare provider. Neither is appealing to me.
I don’t think I would have gotten very far with a partner who didn’t respect and accept my boundaries re my own diabetes. I’ll tell mine what’s up when I’m having issues, and occasionally if I seem off she’ll ask, but in general she assumes it’s my business to share with her as I see fit. Also it’s hard enough sometimes for myself not to overreact when my Dex is still alarming and I know I’ve adequately treated a low. She still is surprised by how long it takes to register—I definitely do not need concerned texts/messages when I’m off dealing with it elsewhere or whatever.
Totally different I think for kids/teens, though with teens I’d be working with a plan toward independence with it then becoming their choice if they want to keep sharing as they become adults.@chris, you seem on track for that which seems sensible.
