My name is Amber and about an hour ago I learned that my 10 year old girl, Echo, is diabetic. I took her to the vet as she has been drinking and urinating a lot more frequently lately. I had hoped it would be nothing, but feared diabetes. I thought I was prepared for the answer but then when the vet started talking to me about starting her on insulin and the huge commitment and all of it, I had to keep myself from bursting into tears. Echo is the sweetest, most lovable girl and she hardly leaves my side. For her to have this disease made me feel like I let her down as an owner. I am just very overwhelmed with all of this. I don't have the most normal schedule and I have two cats so keeping her on a twice daily feeding and insulin schedule is going to be very difficult. I guess I'm just here looking for some support from anyone who felt overwhelmed at the start of their diabetic cat journey. Thanks and nice to meet you all.
