Who has blindness and more...

When I came back to college in January I discovered that I had type 2 diabetes. It's been so hard and wild but I've tried to manage it, school, blindness, trying to keep up with friends, family, and a breakup. Do any of you guys have another condition besides blindness? If so, how do you manage it all?

That sounds very hard to manage. The only condition I have is blindness. And I have very bad depression. I have been to a mental hospital, and have seen both a counselor and a psychiatrist. But now I am on depression medication and it helps.

I don't have anything else, but have known other blind people with various conditions including a girl I once was thinking about dating, and she couldn't handle it to where she wasn't independent.

Good luck in your studies and health
