I told myself I had the flu I was sick for a week couldn't keep anything down passed out three times before I got to my Doctors. Before I knew it I was in the hospital in ICU step-down I was out for three whole days .But I had great people there taking good care of me . I got worried when I lost my eye site but was told I would get it back later . And weak man I was so weak that I couldn't even walk but now I am doing good I stay on my diet and watch what I eat. And Exercise everyday and feel good knowing that I am not alone that there are others like me out there.

I was really sick too and could not get well. All kinds of infection. I was not as bad as being hospitalized but was told I could have a stroke any moment. My triglycerides were 1051 just a little through the roof. My vision went wacky and my glasses did not work for two weeks. Changing my diet and getting my meds adjusted to what works all made the change. It took a couple of tries to get the dosage right.

Plan and shop carefully for what you can have. Get to know the store and what it has. Find out what tastes good. My plain label sugar free jam from our discount grocery tastes better than Smuckers Name brand. Make yourself a priority and become proactive in your life.

Your experience was not a good one but it saved your life. Nice to meet you! We are here for each other. This story you have told of your experience, make it an even longer story. Live a very long time. Your success will light the path for those to come.

hi. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I guess ive been pretty lucky. sometimes if I don't inject on time after I eat i will get very sleepy and sort of pass out. Thats no fun but I've been blessed I've not yet had to go to the hospital.I am glad you are doing better now, God bless you and have a happy thanksgiving.

Welcome to DC!! You have found a wonderful place to be for support, knowledge, or just a place to vent!

My goodness! What a way to find out! Glad to hear you are doing better. How long has it been for you?

I found out a little over a year ago. Right after my mom passed away. I was in such shock from that, that I just denied anything was wrong with me! It took about a year and my body giving me a wake up call to get me going in the right direction. So I consider myself a newbie, because it has just been a little over a month that I have been walking the right path and doing what is good for me.

I pray you continue to be strong and do what you need to to be healthy.
God Bless, Mickey
