diabetic retinopathy. He explained that it was very mild and that it may even go away if I keep my blood sugars under control. Lets face it, you hear about these kinds of things that could happen when you have diabetes but you never really think they are going to happen to you. I asked him several questions. He also told me that it is very common considering I have had type 1 diabetes for 15 years now. He also explained that 80% of people living with diabetes for 15 years have retinopathy. I left and as soon as I got home I sobbed. It is a reality check knowing that many years of not being in control has caught up with me but I also feel very lucky that this is the only complication this far. I refuse to let diabetes take my eye sight. I plan on doing everything in my power to kick its butt!
