I remember this blog bit as far as OCT goes…seeing that diabetically speaking, I’m still a teenager, my retinas (as yet) remain unscathed. I did manage to walk about with (now) glaringly obvious symptoms of hyperglycaemia for more than a year prior to diagnosis (the thirst I had then has since only reappeared when I’ve been above 20 for longer than a day), so in 1995, I’ve had to have my cataracted lenses hoovered out and replaced with plastic ones, and was put on imipramine for burning feet (compliments of neuropathy). Nothing as bloody awful* as retinopathy, though ;)

*the general anaesthetic injection (given prior to the lens extraction) perforated a vein and did leave me with a face resembling something that had been slapped by a mulberry bush :D
