I haven’t had many diabetic episodes since I started taking medicine however, last week (Feb. 2017 ) my blood sugar dropped too low, I was so sick that I guess somehow I didn’t realize my blood sugar was too low. I ended up going back to sleep then when I woke up that day feeling extremely cold, dizzy with stomach pains and then while walking I fell. On the bright side, I am doing much better, my diabetes medicine has been adjusted again and I’ll see my new endocrinologist soon.
Q for today,
How did you find out you were a diabetic?
I’ve been dealing with having unstable blood glucose since I was a child. However, I wasn’t officially diagnosed as a diabetic until last year in 2015. This passed year has been long from highs and lows. Trying to adjust to my new diabetic medicine, to seeing new diabetic specialists, having my first diabetic eye exam, learning how to count carbs, making sure I have enough diabetic supplies, and making sure I check my blood glucose daily. Despite the bad days, I won’t allow diabetes stop me from enjoying the rest of my life.
For all of you who are dealing with diabetes your strength is awesome, stay sytrong! ❤️
It’s not all that fun having to stick yourself “fingerstick” daily, take medicine daily, making sure you’re eating the right foods, as well as have enough snacks and other healthy stuff. I do however, try to stay optimistic throughout it all but some days are bad.
What most people don’t know is I’ve had problems with my blood sugar since I was a child, but the older I get the worse it gets.
Diabetic nerve pains
Dry skin, lotion that sometimes won’t work (for me)
Vision change, yearly diabetic eye exam (for me)
Scars that heal very slowly
Weight gain, Weight lost
Oh and the stigma of it all.
Omg when will it get better?
Having Diabetes Suck!
