After two trips to the e.r., one trip to the doctor's office where I flat out told my doctor to admit me, they finally discovered what has been making me throw up so much this year. I thought I had 3 bouts of the stomach flu but after this last admission and the nausea meds not working they decided to do some tests. After an upper GI that showed food in my stomach after fasting for 12 hours they did a gastric emptying study and discovered I don't digest my food. So now I deal with neuropathy in feet and stomach but thank God my eyes are still fine. I am really struggling to come to terms with this diagnosis. My A1C has been good the past few years, nothing really higher than 8. This past one was 6.7. But like I told my mom no matter how tight of control you have, it is always causing reversible damage. I am seriously thinking about getting into counseling for this. I am not really depressed but having a hard time coming to terms with this.
