Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
No she(Jenny) does not have social security disability, but I think she is in the process of applying. Her daughter is 19 or 20 and graduated from high school last year. There is no diagnosis other than diabetes. Either she didn't take her medication or didn't see a doctor recently so the diabetes was out of control. Her blood sugar levels rose over 700 and she was nearly unconscious when taken into hospital. That's when they discovered the problem with her foot. It was infected, gangrenous and was amputated.
Apparently in the past, her mother tried to get her to counseling, but she refused to go so there is no other diagnosis beyond this recent hospital stay.
