So I've had a really bad experience with my surgery. Two days ago I had a very serious hypo and woke up in my room, twitching and rolling around so violently that i smashed my head several times and got a black eye. I was in this situation because I've lost my glucometer, and I can't test my bloodsugar. I went to a hospital walk-in to make sure I've not had a concussion, and the doctor was very worried for my sugars and told me that I needed to get a meter ASAP, and that I could walk in to my surgery and get one. Today I called my surgery because I wanted to come and get it. From what she said to me I understood that she was gonna book me in with a nurse in 3 days, then MAYBE I'll get a meter. I said that I need it now and tried explaning the situation and how I'm baically afraid to take my insuline, to get that hypo again. She very rudely told me that she would get the doctor to call me after the surgerys opening hours. It doesn't seem like I'll get my glucometer today. Why is this so hard? Why do I get told that I can just walk into my GP ASAP and be able to get a glucometer when I can't even do that? I thought this was considered more important! I'm sorry if I am double posting or should've posted this somewhere else, I'm new to this site!
