I am T2 but understand the burnout. I have not really been taking care of my diabetes for about the last 6-9 months. Several months ago I saw the eye doctor, planning to get glasses. I told him I felt like I just wasn't seeing right. He checked my eyes and found my right one was swollen. No glasses for me.
He asked me to really watch my BG, and let him know if it stopped fairly quickly. I had an appt. to see him in a month. Several days later, I realized I wasn't having that problem any more. that meant it was diabetes related.
Even after several months, I still have some swelling in that eye. My solution - on my pad where I record test results I wrote "eyes" in red at the top. Each time I test, if it is above the recommended values I write "eyes" in red after it. This seems to be working for me. I don't want to lose my vision. I don't know what I would do without my computer, iPad, and TV. LOL
