Let’s take walk down memory lane as I unpack my Journey as a diabetic, so right know in sitting on two different types of insulin one short acting and one long acting and I can say I’m well on my way to healing and creating a better future for myself with this illness.
Before I get deeper into my story I just want to share a few educational facts about diabetes https://www.healthline.com/health/diabetes. Please check this link out and learn more about it, who knows you could possibly help someone in need.
Back to my story.
I’ve had diabetes for a good 6 years and trust me when I say it’s been an uphill battle, I’ve had 3 KDAs (ketoacidosis) I’ve gone through hypoglycemia 4 times and flat lined twice, which I literally joke about this saying that I’m a die-hard because I skipped death a few times, nothing major.
I’m type-one-derful which means I was born with it and it only displayed itself twice in my life, in 2010 I was 13 and when they diagnosed it in 2014 and in that year I was turning 17.
The first time I had it I got the symptoms and went through the whole induction to only have a herbal cure and then it was dormant for a good 4 years then it came back and this time I was sent to high-care and I almost slipped into a coma.
Although I came back from that stronger than ever,I’ve had a bumpy road along the way. I’ve had an eye surgery for both my eyes because I had early cataracts and I encourage someone who needs it to inquire about it and get it done if possible.
I’m currently dealing with a very high body temperature and a small case of temporary peripheral neuropathy.
I know that somewhere somehow a cure will be made and I’m on a quest to find it, I’m even willing to go the herbal route again. Whatever it takes to help myself and the people suffering from this auto-immune diseases. .
