    Type 2 since late 90s. My partner became ill with heart attack, stroke and cancer mid march 2011 and I became an instant 24/7 carer. We married in August but I couldn't pay attention to my diabetic and other needs. My wife died in July 2013 and I am suffering various symptoms of diabetes development. Dizziness, poor memory, high blood pressure, blurred vision, extreme tiredness. No family and 66. 9 months later (May 2014) some improvements but easily overwhelmed. Sold house and found a new flat nearby. Diagnoses with COPD, coping with the side of steroids that treat it. Twitter @Wootgogs.
