I came to Stocken Prison in September 2012, I found the treatment from healthcare to be the worst I've ever experienced.
I am a type one diabetic and having trouble controlling my sugar levels as it is my first time in prison.
I went to health care to ask for sugar tablets in case I had a hypo (its better to be low than high as you do less damage when your low) and I was told by one of the nurses that I should be better controlled.
I found that to be very unhelpful, when I am at home I weigh my food so that I know how many carbohydrates I am taking in. I then asked for an alternative and was told I was being subversive and rude and was told to go away. Hows that for treatment?
