It caused my daughter to get severe neurapathy, the Dr. described it as the worst pain a person can have, it is nerve pain. I had to take a 4 month leave of absence to take care of her and her family.
I remember her pain was unbearable, I cringe just thinking about it, it really took years off of my life.
I realize that if you have your health and family you truly have everything, it doesn't matter how much money you make or what kind of house you have.
It totally made me humble and realize how fragile life is, and to appreciate the important things
in life that money can't buy.
I honestly never thought my daughter would get better, she didn't have health insurance, so rehab was out of the question. She eventually found some support groups on facebook, there were two girls especially that helped her. One had written a book on this disorder and recovered, and the other one, actually would call Steph on the phone and talk to her at least once a week, she also had recovered from this disorder. Both are angels in my book, I will always be grateful to them.
Well after much pray, help from the Lord, and the help of these wonderful ladies, I can now say
my daughter is well and enjoying life. She has some permanent nerve damage to her feel and already
has had cataract surgery, due to all of this, but overall, she is doing extremely well.
She has since gotten health insurance and has had an insulin pump the last year which was a God send.
She was still dealing with low blood sugars which resulted in many calls to 911, I remember one time her blood sugar was 12 and normal is around 100. Each time this would happen I would wonder if this was it and I would loose my daughter.
Well this week, she got a continuous glucose monitor, which checks her blood sugar every 5 minutes, it will put off an alarm if it goes too high or too low. I am so thankful and greatful for modern technology. I can never thank the Lord for all he has done and will continue to do for my daughter. Words can never express my thankfulness. I will praise him forever for answering my prayers.
