At the end of a rather difficult, eye-opening diabetic year, I have decided to make some big changes. I’ve always been the lone diabetic for a good twenty-some odd years which has worked for my old mindset….buuuut, as I said: changes. I’m new to the whole blogosphere, but I figure joining a community of diabetics would be a pretty excellent idea, so, here I am. In the past year, I have under went six laser treatments and two major surgeries for diabetic retinopathy which has been pretty tough – physically and emotionally. But everything went well and I’m reclaiming my diabetes from years of a self-produced rocky road. I’m hoping to connect with other diabetics out there because well, it’s always nice when someone understands!
