    Go Erik go! You and Allison are both so awesome, and I'm happy to call you my friends. Now I must send this link to Matt, I'm pretty sure he'll like it too. :)

    Hi Erik,
    Thanks for sharing your story. My husband and I are married 30 years and he's had Type 1 only the last five of our marriage. But he does have some other serious chronic illnesses that developed after we'd been married 15 years. What I find to be both the most challenging but also the most rewarding in marriage is the choices to keep on loving. This is what you displayed so well, the choices to love! like giving up your "right" to see a museum at your own pace to sit with her during a low. To encourage her to get the support she needs even when it comes in a way that you don't quite relate to. This challenge to actively, unconditionally love will keep stretching you and blessing your marriage. What a good start you guys have. I wish you many years of love, freely given, freely received.
