When David found out he had diabetes, it was obviously a shock to the couple. Like so many with diabetes, the challenges of making lifestyle changes can be difficult. But David and Tamela, who’ve been married for 22 years, have managed to find the right balance, make the necessary changes, juggle busy acting schedules, and find the support and strength they need by relying on each other.
“We both lean on each other a lot,” David says. “When I am weak, Tamela is strong, and when she is weak, I am strong.”
