Diabetic Cyborg Life 7/13: Believe or Not, I am doing What I Can, Pt. 2
Random people ask me sometimes about what I do for a living or why I am not still in college. Let me reset my life for any new and for the longtime readers…
Then my eyes started flickering, yet were not the issue as an eye doctor insisted. I sought help at an ER. This is where I came to Medium and started sharing my life; I hope that post is still viewable for everyone. Anyway, in the fall and winter months of 2017, multiple sclerosis was confirmed with a spinal tap in September, the type 2 diabetes turned to type 1.
That never happens according to medical science, and the autoimmune issue my first primary care doctor diagnosed seems to be showing more than ever. A change from relapse and remitting MS to likely secondary progressive MS. That diagnosis is yet to be confirmed by my new neurologist at the Maxine Mesinger Clinic in Houston as of now.
COVID stopped that confirmation, as all doctors are understandably busy with bigger pandemic patients now. Maintaining that holding pattern waiting out this disease is troubling as I see signs of likely progression.
