Hope you feel better soon. Yes I go every year to Kirkcaldy hospital to have my eyes checked too but have been okay. Must admit the service in Fife is good I have a checkup done every year and the nurse does my blood every few months. I take two different tablets for my diabetes and they are very good. My sugar is well under control. Hope you see about your eyes soon Aileen keep your chin up I'm sure you will get an appointment soon. Take care.
I have to inject insulin, which is a bit of a nuisance at times, albeit a minor one. I never go anywhere without my testing kit though. I've never had a hypo, although I've come close on a few occasions, so always have a small bar of chocolate with me too.
Luckily my vision isn't affected since so far it's only some of the very tiny blood vessels round the periphery of my eyes that are leaking. Things haven't really changed much over the past few years but last time I had the retinopathic screening done by my optician, he felt a second opinion was now necessary to determine whether I need laser treatment now to seal them off. I'm just very grateful that these days something can be done about it. It won't cure the condition but should at least slow down its progress.
