Had an emergency on the 12th of August; as my husband's numbers jumped from 315 that morning to over 598 that evening. We called to see what we could do about it since the office was closed. I had to call the after hours phone number; and had me on hold for over 20 minutes and then hung up on me. I then called 911 and they came and got the numbers lower; but could not give him anything; as he does not take insulin at that time. Called the doctor the next day and we went to see her and she gave him insulin; since his blood pressure was 90/63; and we waited to see what they were going to do about his numbers being so high. Well; he's now on insulin and I give him the shots everyday, check his blood sugars everyday and make sure that he gets his other medicine also. Its now time for me to re-evaluate how we're going to do things now that he's a Type 1 and I'm scared that this may not work too. Now on top of that; I'm having trouble getting up and down to go to the bathroom, going to the kitchen to make dinner, etc. and will now have to use a walker to get around. Not complaining; just blowing off stem; but I feel like crying and just don't know what else to do about anything. Just feel like both of us are being tested and don't know when it's going to stop. They are going to have him go to classes and learn how to portion size things; even though he eats very little now; not hungry; and they are going to help him loose weight; like go from 330 to 165 in 89 days; what a shocker; and have him weigh himself and report his weight everyday online to the VA. I'm not knocking the VA; because without them he would still be carrying around a big hernia and neither one of knowing the other health issues that he's now got. It's just when his numbers were all over the place before; nobody wanted to listen; and now that his numbers are so high; they want to listen and now do something about it like put him on insulin when they could have done something before all of this happened. He'll be going to MOVE and another program to help him learn what foods he can and cannot have; like NO SUGAR, CONTROL HIS CARBS, ETC. Where were all of these people when he needed them the most? Why did they not see that he was in trouble before and not say anything about it then? I'm really frustrated and getting stressed out which is not good for me; but then they tell me to back-off and not take control over him giving himself shots when he's suppose to and let him do it for himself. They watched him struggle with the idea of getting the dosage right and then having to give himself the shot; and when she told him to give himself 10 units; he was going to give himself 10cc's of insulin. He's never done this before and I explained that I knew how to do this because of my Mom; she told me to quit babying him. I wanted so badly to reach over a just smack her; but I stopped myself. Sorry; I'm just frustrated and angry and don't know what to do anymore. He doesn't want his two daughters to know what's going on because his ex-wife is around them and they run to her about everything that he tells them; and he doesn't want his Mom to know because she is 85 years old and has Alz. My daughter knows and our granddaughters know; but that's it; and its getting harder and harder to keep calm and not stress out. His numbers today were 257 before breakfast,354 after breakfast; then 356 before lunch, then 514 after lunch; with the 10 units of insulin. HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY AND WHAT TO DO, PLEASE.
