The sun ☀️ view from my hospital room!
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! ❤️
