I'm not a blogger, but I'll post a message that i just posted in a group:
I'm a T1 since I was 8 (i'm 31 now). I since ever i had myopia from family inheritance. Back in 2000 I did a laser surgery and after that could see like an eagle. It was fantastic.
But then, in 2004 my vision became blurred. I crashed my car twice that year and could never imagined l had developed retinopathy. I changed my eye doctor. The other said I had microaneurism in my right eye and told me to care and consult twice a year. In December 2007 things got worse and l had to go to a laser treatment. Another fantastic change in my vision. One year after my vision got blurred again, slowly. Last month l went to the ophthalmology and she got worried. Tomorrow l will see another doc who lasers me, a specialist in retinopathy.
Coincidently, two weeks ago I started an acupuncture treatment for anxiety and depression problems and mentioned that l was T1 and had retinopathy. I only got 3 sessions of acupuncture and literally I already see the difference of before/after the treatment. I will have 8 more needle (something i'm habituated) sessions. I'm expecting that after (or before) I finish the acupuncture treatment, I can finally say "wow, fantastic!!" like I did in 2000.
Tomorrow I'll have my eyes screened an in November i'll go back to the ophthalmology. Now, I'm waiting to see what's happening...
I'm not making any advertisement of Acupuncture, but it is working with me and I became a fan. From now on I'll have it as an alternative for my treatment!
