ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have type one diabetes and I try to keep it under control but it's a struggle because I'm brittle which is a term not used anymore but I'm old so it's ok...lol I have had 2 heart attacks and I just turned 44 years old and unfortunately the state decided for me a few years ago after an incident that I would never work again. I ending up in the hospital due to my blood sugar dropping too low in addition to my heart attacks. I also have a heart defect I was born with called a split s2. My other problems are many being arthritis, back problems shoulder injuries knee injuries neck injuries so pretty much if it moves it hurts on me because I loaded trucks for a living and I got hurt on the job which is a long story. I'm in constant pain which is why I'm getting ready to have yet another surgery because I can't move my shoulder due to a car wreck I was in last year and this is my second surgery on it. I stay exhausted because I have insomnia honestly because I hurt all the time when I lay down. I get migraines too I've had them all my life and allergies I guess too. I've been told I have diabetic neuropathy, and I went blind once for 3 weeks when my sugar went too low so my blood sugar can go extremely low. I also have been told I have kidney problems I was peeing blood so and had protein in my urine they said I had stage one kidney disease before so I'm on that medication. I've been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and I was told there was a problem with my hips and my vertebrae being twisted or tilted I don't know I can't remember I'm not a Dr it had a name I can't remember that makes my legs go numb and ache. So all of this and not working gave me depression and anxiety because I used to work 16 hours a day and now I'm useless and I was diagnosed with PTSD from some terrible things that happened in my past but I'm dealing with it. On top of all of it I'm a single mother to a diabetic son with ADHD and asthma and allergies.
