Being Invisible

This post is not strictly to do with T1D, but it does have a connection.

I was walking through the city today and was reminded of something as I avoided another person on the footpath.

For anyone under the age of about 50, I have sad news for you. One day you will reach an age when you magically become invisible. For me this happened about 10 years ago. That was when people younger than maybe 30 or 35 stopped recognising that I was even there in a public setting. I mentioned this to an older friend and he said “Oh yes, definitely. I can remember the day that happened.”

So now I am an invisible man living with an invisible illness. Sadly that doesn’t mean I can walk through walls.

Wouldn’t that be great. šŸ™‚
