If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that I mentioned about being on insulin.
Yes, this happened because my sugar level skyrocketed while I was sick.
If you know me personally, you'll know that whenever I was extremely sick, and had to have surgeries, or be treated for illness, my sugar level rose. Always.
However, once I was healed and no longer ill, my sugar level would go back to normal.
When I went to the hospital in June, an emergency room (ER) doctor who had a student doctor working with her, accused me of only being ill due to having a high sugar level. I explained to both of them what I just told you.
As it turned out, and as you probably read in the past, I had a physical problem that I don't want to discuss here. Also, I had a terrible infection within me, and had to have a picc line so they could give me four (4) types of antibiotics... all at the same time.
This situation was so upsetting to me.
Not just because of my health concern. Also, because of my sugar level that rose, again.
A male doctor that used to worship with me, at a different church, is the physician who placed me on the two (2) types of insulin.
One type was to supposedly help me for 24 hours. The other type was to be taken before I ate meals.
It was the 24 hour insulin that affected my vision.
How do I know this?
Well, when I was released from hospital, I was given prescriptions for both types of insulin.
The meal type of insulin was partially covered by insurance coverage that I have. However, the 24 hour type of insulin... was NOT.
Yes, I had enough at home for me to wait until the health insurance company would approve the 24 hour type of insulin.
The pharmacy gave me a form to partially fill out. I had to give it to a doctor who actually had given me the prescriptions.
It wasn't my brother in the Lord, who originally placed me on the insulins. It was a doctor who treats people for diabetes.
I paid the fee to the doctor, so he would complete the rest of the form and send it to the insurance company.
Did he do it? No.
At first, I thought there was just a delay. However, later I found out he never sent the form to the insurance company. You probably aren't shocked that I went and was refunded for the fee I had paid to him.
However, it truly made me happy when I ran out of the 24 hour insulin.
Well, not at first. The pharmacy let me know that since there was no insurance coverage, it would cost me almost $800.00 for the prescription to be filled.
Agh!!!! Was I shocked? Yes!
Even so, I decided to not use the insulin. After all, I hated being on it.
When I wasn't able to take any, my vision problem healed. And, my sugar level began decreasing.
For this, I praised and blessed God!
Thinking about this, brought to mind, Psalm 103:1, "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name."
I bless the Lord! All that is within me, blesses Him!
Not just for this situation. But also, for many other things.
I feel truly blessed, as well.
He provides for me, always. And, helps me deal with horrible physical issues, and life problems... every day!
For this, I will always be thankful!
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
