After being diagnosed as diabetic and DKA last week, my guy spent 4 days in the hospital and was able to come home on Saturday. He gets 1/2 unit of Lantus twice a day, 3 pills at night and 2 in the morning (antibiotic, Pepcid, appetite stimulant). Saturday night went ok. He was so worn out I was able to do paw stick and give him the shot without him really flinching. He also took the pills pretty easily. Yesterday the glucose testing (morning and night) was a little more problematic because he was protesting, the shot went fine, and the pills were an absolute nightmare because he rejected the pill pockets and I ended up having to put them in the back of his mouth. Today the glucose testing was a hassle and he started pulling away when I was giving him the shot (both morning and night) as if it was hurting him. I haven't even gotten to tonight's pills yet. I'm completely beat down by this. I know I am doing this for his own good, but he is an absolutely different cat than he was before last week. He recoils anytime I go near him, hides from me, won't sit near me (he used to want to be near me constantly), and basically just waits until I'm asleep or leave the apartment to even come out into the open. While I want to do right by him, I feel like I am just tormenting him at this point. Does anyone have tips to make this less miserable for him? I'm supposed to do a curve on Saturday and I can't imagine testing him every 2 hours. Just the thought of it is making me sick. I'm sorry for the novel, but I'm really struggling right now with whether I'm causing him more grief than I am saving him from and I just don't know what to do.
