I have type 2 diabetes. I got gestational diabetes with my first baby and just got to keep it. Lucky me! So now I am pregnant again, and so this makes me "high risk." If I don't control it, it can cause heart defects and all kinds of terrible things for the baby. When babies are in their mommies bellies, there bodies regulate there insulin by what there mommies sugars are. And then once the umbilical cord is cut, it starts regulating its own blood sugar. So if when the baby is born my sugar is 400, her poor little body will have the amount of insulin for an adult with high sugar in her blood stream instead of just enough for her, so she may go into sugar shock. Obviously a bad thing. I know these things, and I do my very best to keep it regulated. Unfortunately my insurance doesn't cover my Dr's visits for it or my medicine, so it has made it ten times harder to make sure I have the proper care. My awesome endocrinologist (blood Dr) has decided that I am not trying hard enough and fired me as a patient. I was fired by someone I was paying for a service. They didn't bother to tell me this until I show up for my appointment. They sent me a certified letter a month ago that I never received, and I have seen them twice since then. So I feel like the way they did it was pretty shady. I am not terribly heartbroken because I dreaded going to this Dr. They always talked to me like I was stupid or didn't give a shit. I always felt like a bad child when I went. But my Ob's nurse also likes to talk to me like I'm an idiot as well, and now I need another referral. I had to finally tell her that lecturing me is not what I need, what I need is a referral and to do that and shut up! I said it nicer then that but I am so tired of people treating me like an idiot. I only have six weeks, so I would have seen the blood Dr. only twice more, but now I have to start over with a whole new Dr. I just want to have the baby already and have my two months of time with no Drs. Just Roberto, Sweet Pea, Nina and Bliss. I have a headache just thinking about it.
