I am hoping this helps others avoid being in the shape I am in; I have no one to blame for me; IF I had taken a yearly check up a lot of this could have been avoided. So first, please get regular check ups.
I didn't realize it until three years ago when I leaned the hard way that I am diabetic, type 2. It's affected my vision, they are testing me, they feel I may ave damage to my kidneys from it.
I also have diabetic neuropathy in my fingers and toes. This causes them to be numb, like they are on Novocaine. I'm lucky in that I don't have the pain that can go with it
The good news is diabetes can be managed, though the damage is not reversible.
So please, take care of yourself, I wish I had... get a check up and avoid all this
