*grumble first* Why do the results letters always appear on a Saturday when you can’t call anyone? Anyway, bit of background: I’ve never been the greatest diabetic, I fully admit that (and now flipping regret it!), but I have NEVER skipped injections, just done a lot of guess work for many years and plodded along, my diet hasn’t been perfect either, but earlier this year I decided to tighten everything up and have basically turned myself into a human pin cushion (waiting for a libre and it cannot come quick enough!) and am trying my hardest to stay in good control. So, I attended my eye screening on Monday and got the results letter today, no mention of anything other than ‘the results show that there have been diabetic changes to your eye(s). It is necessary to refer you to have a special scan called an OCT, which will be reviewed by an Opthamologist to help us assess whether you need to be seen in person.’ Anyone else had this? Should I be climbing the walls? I suffer from chronic anxiety and have been told to lower my stress levels so as you can imagine this is not helping me at all. The only plus point is I have already been referred to opthamology because thanks to stress I have fluid behind my right eye (hence being told to reduce stress!) that the optician is sure will reabsorb by itself, so have an appointment this Tuesday to get that looked at so should be able to pick their brains then.
