My mom was a diabetic. She developed diabetes as a child. First tested at the age of 18, they discovered it.
She would ALWAYS steal candy, cookies, all kinds of sugary foods from her parents pantry as a kid.
It’s something that she would never control. But today YOU CAN with this blood sugar tracker!
Blood Sugar Tracker
I remember as a kid, my mom telling me things like, “I’ll eat this whole cake because I can just take more insulin.”
Years and years of abusing her body, she struggled with many side effects, but would never take care of herself. She wanted to die. She was slowly killing herself.
As a teen, one day she asked me to commit suicide with her. She told me that she would inject me with the insulin needle, enough to kill me, and then she would kill herself by injecting too much insulin in herself as well.
I remember running to the bathroom, completely scared for my life. I was just absolutely terrified. I stayed in the bathroom for over an hour.
When I came out, she was sleeping and I ran to my room so as not to wake her and just cried.
I don’t think I ever got over that. I don’t think a person ever CAN.
How can your own mother want you dead?
When she died at age 65 (she ended up killing herself), honestly, I was relieved. She was a complete and utter monster to me my entire life. Constantly beating me, up until I was 18 when I threatened to call the cops on her.
She wanted her body donated to help others when she died. Out of respect for her, I worked with the people to donate whatever we could.
The ONLY thing she was able to donate was her eyes. There was not one single other thing on her body that was usable to help other people.
Why? Because she had destroyed her body her whole life.
Tears. So to ME, you can see why this post is very important to me.
Listen, I NEED YOU to take care of yourself. I do not want one child to ever have to go through what I did. The pain, the abuse, the torment.
