I have to admit since becoming a parent taking care of myself has been last on my list. Last week that caught up with me. I went into DKA with glucose level of 548 at the hospital. My children witnessed me getting sick, and being taken to the hospital from our home. I haven't been doing what i should have been for myself. Constantly putting everyone else's needs ahead of my own. Not checking Bs when i should have, not having the insulin i needed due to money issues, etc. My mom brought the kids to the hospital to see me. They were scared. My daughter wouldn't come near me. My step son had neevr been so worried. I don't know how to explain to them what happened or why it happened... I need ideas as well on changes and how to keep up the glucose testing so my blood sugars can get under control again. Also, does anyone have ideas about how to get insulin when you don't have the money???????
