So for the first few years of being diagnosed i was excellent in controlling my diabetes and than i just got tired of it all so for the past four or five years i have been not taking care of myself. I’ve been in the hospital multiple times for DKA but now i have met my wonderful boyfriend who i love very much and we plan on trying to start having kids late this year or next year so i’ve been working pretty hard on getting it under control again the past two months. I have no health insurance so i have a ton of hospital bills but i get insulin from the company’s well they switched me from lantus to levemir and that caused me to end up in the hospital for a week but they still left me on it. Well since i have been on it i had swelling in just my right leg so i was sent to the hospital for a ultrasound on my leg to see if it was a blood clot and it came back negative so i was than told to have a ultrasound scheduled on my stomach but they couldn’t fit me in until a week or two away. So instead i went into the ER and they went ahead and did the ultrasound on my abdomen and pelvis and found nothing. They than took like 6 vials of blood and sent me home with crutches and told me to stay on bed rest and wait for my test results of the blood work. Well they called and said they found nothing and the next day my other leg has been swelling now too. I just wish they could find out whats wrong with me i weigh like 110 and I’m 21 so for my legs to be swelling it pulls my skin tight and it gets real sore. Now yesterday i can’t hear out of my left ear i don’t know if it has something to do with the swelling in my legs or not but it seems when i go and try to control my diabetes everything just crashes down. Ugh sorry just needed to get that out there i don’t really have anyone around my age with diabetes around here to talk to
P.S. Also i always seem to start feeling down when it gets close to my anniversary date its on May 4th which will be going on 8years!!
