I am now having panic attacks. They are slowly getting better as time goes on though.
I also had a hypoglycemia episode a couple of months after my son was diagnosed. I was completely shocked because I had never experienced one of those before. I actually have met two other mothers who did the same thing after their children were diagnosed.
I think the combination of stress, worry, lack of sleep, and other things do take a toll on us after a while and your body eventually just says "that's enough." It is very hard on me as I have always had strong mind and strong body, with no health issues at all and now I feel like I'm falling apart.
