Share your feelings, frustrations. Teach others about yours, learn about theirs.
My life partner drank alcohol in excess from age 25 to 50; had pancreatitis several times, then found out the alcohol had destroyed her pancreas so that it produces only one percent of needed insulin. Suddenly, she has found herself with "brittle' diabetes, not Type I or II which respond to measured amount of insulin injections as prescribed. Every day, every hour, she has to check her Blood Sugar as it swings high to 300 then down to 34 in sometimes less than an hour. Six times or more per day she has to check BS, then eat yogurt or other food hoping it doesn't swing too high to be dangerous; She can't hold a job where her BS ups and downs constantly change drastically. Fortunately if she's asleep, BS lower than 50 awakens her so she goes through that process at various hours during the night. The fear is: high BS does NOT awaken her, any body infection (gums, a cut, a boil, any infection, can send BS so high she can die during her sleep any night, any frightful night. She had appointment for pulling of two teeth and it had to be done in hospital due to heart artery disease, BUT during the night her BS when UP and when I woke her up for the appt, she couldn't wake up; paramedics came, her BS was 800, she stopped breathing but, thankfully, with CPR and adding a ventilator, they got her back. Three days later she woke up in Intensive Care hospital room; She's only 52. KNOW alcoholism can destroy your pancreas and you live at death's door every day.
