Diabetes Blog Week Day 2: Keep It to Yourself Tuesday
Diabetes can be a very mental disease. It likes to play mind games with you. It likes to claw it’s way in and all you can do is be ready for it and tell it to go away.

In previous posts, I’ve delved into the rollercoaster that has been my eye health over the past 3-odd years. It has definitely been quite the wild ride – good and bad; optimistic and dreary. I think the biggest thing I keep to myself now is the extent of my fear about my eyesight. I don’t share my true thoughts about any given aspect. I don’t share exactly how much I sit and think about my vision and obsess over what I see at any given moment in time. It keeps me up at night some times, but then again, THAT is just diabetes in general.
