I Would Like To Tell You What Happened To Me........In June, My nephew's wedding was in New Hampshire. My husband and I are both Diabetics (He's type 2 and I'm Type 1) We had forgotten our test strips and insulin back in Florida, and I didn't realize it until we got to New Hampshire. I didn't feel good because my BS was up to 398. My husband went and called the paramedics who kept insisting they should give me glucose to take care of the "problem". I kept telling them I DID NOT NEED GLUCOSE- I need INSULIN- And they wouldn't listen to me. My sister wanted me to go with her to the drugstore to buy my insulin, but these people would not let me go. I was getting so mad at them, because they did not understand what I needed, and were talking to me like I was 12 years old, and I felt like an idiot- They kept insisting I should go to the hospital- And, I said I did not spend all this money on a trip to go to a hospital- Im here for my nephews wedding. Even after testing my Blood sugars, which kept going UP, they kept telling me to take glucose. Yeah, right, thats just what I need. I can't believe the Medical Assistance in this Country. What a bunch of idiots. It's like my husband's doctor telling him that he has to loose weight- but increases his insulin to more than he actually needs. Insulin makes you GAIN weight. I don't know about these people or what school they went to- maybe they should go back and re-learn. Thanks for reading.
