Thank God for God and the medical team and my family and friends who stood in the gap for me. Four days later, I woke up.
Recovery was hard and strenuous. I was on thrice a day insulin. It took weeks for me to be able to walk unassisted. Months before I could see again (I am so grateful my sight loss was not irreversible) I came through it without any organ damage. God is faithful.
My husband took care of me all through.
When I was feeling more myself, I went to Ilorin to stay with my parents a while and give my husband time to recover himself. He worked hard taking care of me, our son and the home that period.
It was in Ilorin I spoke with my dad’s doctor and he opened my eyes to the fact that denying my diabetes status was no solution. I should instead learn all I can about it. Ignorance will only get me killed.
So I learned all I could about it. I researched. I asked questions. I attended diabetes clinic. I joined an online community for Type 2 diabetics.
Then I took responsibility for myself. I took control of my health. I started the Low Carb High Fat healthy eating and I started reading up on foods and how it affects our bodies in different ways. Thank God I’d always been a foodie so it was very interesting and easy for me.
I know many people will say – but all these foods you post are not good for diabetics na!!! Let me tell you something now – I am totally off drugs. No insulin. No oral tablets. With those same foods I post.
The picture is my blood sugar reading I took now. It's 97 mg/dl
See how normal it is?
