Been a while since I posted, been so busy with life and all that, but I thought I’d share this for all the people who get despondent about it all. So on the 23rd of Jan, 2021 I started to feel terrible, like all people I assumed it was COVID. When I started to have trouble breathing, we called an ambulance. It was a DKA, my diabetes was wildly out of control. I was in resus for several hours (where the words “possible multiple organ failure” were mentioned when they thought I was out of it), a week on a specialist ward, and moved on to insulin. Fast forward. It’s 25th of Feb (13 months later) I’ve lost just shy of 10 stone, I’ve gone from 24 Lantus & 6 \7 NovoRapid with every meal to just 12 Lantus and no NovoRapid. And I have my diabetic review. Numbers are normal. As in normal human non-diabetic range, if anything slightly lower end of that range. And now they are looking at taking me off the Lantus. No more daily injections… This may look like a “look at me!” Post, but I have the willpower of a piece of lettuce. This is a “if I can do it, anyone can” post and if it gives even one person a bit of hope, it was worth all the tapping away on my phone.
