The crud that started it all?
This picture came up on my memories feed. I remember this illness very well. V wasn’t eating much and lost a bit of weight. It seems to have started the gradual downward spiral. 5 months later V was exhibiting clear signs of diabetes that we all completely missed. No, we do not know, and perhaps will never know, what caused or triggered diabetes. But in my memories this is a clear “pre-diagnosis” image and it makes me wonder: regardless of the cause, is this when it all started?
