    Glad you managed to get your eyes checked. It was the most sensible thing you could have done in the circumstances.

    I’m sure the medically trained would have told you differently if it were the case. This was not your fault. X.

    • Hi guys , HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL . I just started feeling strong again after covid . I lost more weight since being sick . Total 21lbs. I had my A1c in September it was 77, doctor said because I was ill and on steroids could be the cause , I was also only able to eat plain food and sadly it was toast , its all i could stomach ,but I've worked hard to exercise as much as i can and also now eating low carb . My readings in the morning are now 8 instead of 10.5 sometimes it was higher. My readings after meals now are 8.5 . I checked on the chart and this is in normal range , so I do feel i am improving . It really takes time to get over this illness . Ive also been struggling with my mental health , lost three friends and a cousin since last July , \i'm now registered with MIND again and waiting for some counselling . I'm feeling good again .
    I hope everyone on here are well xx
