“My DME diagnosis was both a shock and a relief. For years, my family knew that whenever we were all watching TV,
I would ask, “What does that say?” I couldn’t read the captions, and I kept needing to get stronger glasses.
I also take a lot of classes educating me on my diabetes, and I always had to sit way up front.
I never imagined that some of these vision issues could be connected to damage caused by my diabetes,
so it was good to learn what my condition was. Being able to put a name to what I was going through allowed me
to take the steps I needed to take better care of my eyes and to help protect against further vision loss.
Because of what I went through, I now always encourage people to stay on top of managing their diabetes.”
