My life changed dramatically when I was diagnosed with diabetes.
I got down to 100 lbs and was eating everything but continued to lose more weight. I went to the doctor and found out at 28 that I am diabetic.
The doctor diagnosed me with type 1 diabetes and had the highest blood sugar they had ever heard of. I am now 3 years into the disease and still working on it every day.
It was the hardest thing to deal with because nobody in my family has this disease so we knew nothing.
Lows are the scariest thing in the world and impossible to deal with, my family and boyfriend worry every night when I go to bed if I’ll be ok. Sometimes I wake up and don’t know what day it is.
I’ve had 3 times where I woke up to ambulance surrounding me with needles in my arm to get me in range. I’ve been in a diabetic coma numerous times and it’s, without doubt, the worst feeling in the world.
I pray for a cure every day and night.
