I'd been experiencing dizziness, terrible pain in my chest, vomiting nonstop and just overall feeling like complete shit. Immediately they knew what was wrong with me, I have Type 1 Diabetes. The disease does not run in my family, so I assume I got it after giving birth to Dzhokhar. After 3 days of no eating or drinking I woke up in my hospital bed very unsure of how this all happened to me. How did I let my health get so bad???? I was also diagnosed with Acute Kidney Injury, Acute UTI, Hypokalemia and something else that I cannot remember.
I maintained a Vegetarian diet for the past 8 years, so the fact that this all happened now is just surprising. I promise to restore my health and rid myself of this disease the best I can.
The worst part of this was not being there for Dzhokhar. I've never been away from him more than 2 days, and 6 was just way too long. The moment he woke up I cried. When I looked into his beautiful gray eyes I could feel this huge void in my heart being filled.
Now I am home and dreading going back to work tomorrow. I've missed so many posts, and I do plan to play "catch up".
This is it for tonight, my fingers are all hot and swollen.
