    After showing some changes last year, this morning's letter has come back all clear with no retinopathy. Have to say, I needed that! I also didn't quite believe others, including DSN, who said that it wasn't always the case that they deteriorated and the results can come back clear after showing some changes the year before. So hope for others out there in the same position :)

    Thanks guys. Was on a bit of a downer tbh and not really looking forward to family coming to stay and meal out tonight. Amazing what a bit of good news can do to your spirits. I dread the 'eye' letter results more than anything and really feel for everyone else who are currently having eye problems. For me personally, it's the worse complication that Diabetes can bring. I'm just so glad that they can do so much more now than they could several years ago.
