Diabetic In Need Of Fast Help
Organized by: Jessica Krieg
At sixteen years old my world was turned upside down, as i was diagnose with juvenile (type one) diabetes. From then on out I refused to take care of myself, because I didn't want to believe that I was sick, I also didn't want my life to change. After constantly ending up back at the E.R literally 5 minutes from death (as the doctors put it.) I started to get better with taking care of myself, not completely but starting was better than nothing. About a year and a half ago I ended up with pneumonia, right back to the E.R for me, but this time was different, being that I am diabetic it was serious to them when at first they couldn't figure out what was wrong. Then the unimaginable, at about 3 o'clock in the morning my heart had stopped and I stopped breathing. they revived me, then ended up putting me in an induced coma, they did x rays and eventually found that I had chronic pneumonia in both lungs. I had breathing tubes down my throat and suction tubes in my nose and I was out for 5 days. After that experience I promised myself to take care of me, no matter what. So up until about a week ago I had stayed out of the hospital for a year and a half, apposed to every 3 or 4 months being in there. Unfortunately, when I turned 21, June 30th my insurance dropped my case, and as for working, I cant because of swelling and chronic head aches from being diabetic. Anyway I ended up back in the E.R last week because I cant afford Insulin witch I inject about 4 to 6 times a day. I also cant afford syringed and test strips, or doctors appointments and hospital bills. I am doing my best to keep myself healthy and I just really have no clue whats going to happen once I run out of insulin and supplies. I have a 3 year old daughter that depends on me . So please anything and everything helps and is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much and god bless.
