My Diabetes Anniversary Date Approaches

May 12, 2020

On May 31st, 2020, besides the fact I share an anniversary with a friend, I’m going to have my 29-year diabetic-coma anniversary. Not only was I slipping into diabetic coma at 10 years old, I was having a psychotic break. Now that I analyze the situation with my current mental health knowledge that I wasn’t allowed to have until 20 even if I wasn’t seeing the right sort of psychiatrist. I was not seeing someone who knew about schizoaffective being a thing. Eventually though, I triumphed over the family restrictions regarding seeing a psychiatrist by successfully using my SSI insurance, or Santa Clara Family Plan. I completely broke convention when I saw my real psychiatrist, Dr. Zhang. But at that point, I wasn’t feeling well, so I was like, hey, I need to see someone, whatever.
