Hi all, i haven't been here for quite a while but its nice to see some of the same friendly faces!
So i suffered with DKA back in october and havent felt healthy ever since. The hole experience left me very shaken up and traumatised! after spending 2 days in icu and a futher 3 days in hospital with drips and a urine cathador thigs completely regressed when i finially came home!! i was afraid to eat, i was afraid to leave the house, i didnt trust the meter, i would go extrememly low and and over react! i felt like my body was completely going to fail me. I promised myself i would never let something like that happen again however things are still out of control, im not taking my insulin out of pure lazyness and its basicaly routing now that i dont take the lantus, im not recording the sugar level and i really am falling into a hole which i feel like ill never be able to climb out of!
The DKA experience was supposed to be a wake up call for me taking control, now its just something which i barely survived and left me confused about what kind of life im capable of living.
After having type onefor 6 years i always believed controlling and accepting that my life would need to change would get easier, but instead my health is deteriorating as well as my optimism for life, and im only 22!!
I was wondering what other experiences people may of had with DKA please share !! did you seek
appropriate help support or advice which you may think might help myself and others??
