On Friday I was diagnosed as diabetic.
This was, of course, a shock, on top of my other medical and other problems:
- Arthritis in the talonavicular joint in the right foot.
- Eyesight which although corrected by glasses does not respond quickly to changes in light intensity.
- Suspected Asperger’s syndrome. (Okay, this last one isn’t medical).
Nothing serious there. But it adds up. Especially as I have been told that the arthritis and eyesight will now have to be monitored as they can be affected by the diabetes.
However my self pity was soon put into context later that day by events in Paris. Please pray for the people of Paris.
