Love those Indian tribe named towns. I was born and raised across the Sound on Long Island, with a ton of Indian named towns. Perhaps you were suffering from either Highs or lows with your blood sugars. It's important to test often, eat properly, and don't skip meals. Others will post links where help might be available for low income, no insurance situations. Stand by for help and infoemation, it will be coming.

The key to surviving type 2 diabetes is to monitor and manage your blood glucose level through your diet, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.
When you are feeling dizzy or faint, do you check your glucose level, it's very important because if it is too low or too high you are at risk for many complications, the most severe being a possible coma and or death.

I may be criticized for being blunt but diabetes if uncontrolled is just as blunt.
Have you discussed this with your doctor or dietician ?
