Sooooooooo, I am a long time, Type 1 diabetic. Going on 38 years now. To be perfectly honest, I've never taken especially great care of myself. I've had a traumatic experience in my life, that pretty much made me not care anymore. I was also not the world's smartest teen.
I am now experiencing "problems". I am extremely overweight, and think I have the beginning stages of neuropathy. Neither my husband or I went to college, and recently moved to a new state. He just found out today (as a matter of fact), that he was hired for a part time position that only pays minimum wage. I have been trying to find a job, but so far, no luck. I don't have health insurance, but have "pending" Medicaid. As most of us know, diabetic supplies are expensive!
I am stressed out, and stress makes me nauseated, as well as having high blood sugars. So, for the past week or so, I have been having both extreme "highs and lows", as far as blood sugar goes. This is one of those times when I just really hate having this stupid disease. NOT that I wish anything bad for my family members, but it makes me wonder why I was the one in my family who had to inherit this from my father. I have a lot of the same "bad stuff" that he has, and I'm having a moment where it just doesn't seem fair. *sigh*
