Hello everyone! I'm totally new to diabetic connect, and even to diabetes. I'm a care giver, for my mother, who was recently diagnosed with diabetes type 2. It has been a problem for years it seems, but only recently recognized when mother had to go to the hospital, and she'll be released tomorrow, the first day of October. I'm very scared. We have no insurance. We've had to apply for a PMDT, which will hopefully get us access to medicaid and help pay for mom's medicines. But right now, I have nothing. I have to work every morning, and still somehow care for mother and afford her meds and proper diet on very little money. I don't have any clue how to even get the stuff required to check her blood sugar levels. I am sorry to sound so panicked in my first message, but I'm absolutely desperate for help and advice.
