My partner has been diabetic type 1 for 25years. I have been his partner for nearly 2years. He sometimes displays terrible angry mood swings for no reason at all and the next minute he is ok. I know this can be typical of someone who is type 1 but at times I find this very difficult. He does not seem to want to talk or address this.
