    Sad, I guess everything in moderation.

    Radio had a thing about this story this morning, made me think about everything from being selfish (lets face it, most users don't really need it) to more anger at the Pharma industry.

    Geez, so masturbation only leads to blindness if you're using Viagra to help you out? Mom's got some explaining to do...

    It does sound as though the blindness is due to the normal progression of diabetes. A decrease blood flow. The very reason that the patient needed Viagara in the first place. All drugs have side effects, noticed that vision is one that's mentioned.
