I went to the eye doctor’s two days ago. And finally. Some sustained good news.
Despite some scarring, my eyes are the best that they have been since diagnosis.
It is hard for me to believe that. For nearly two years it was one calamity after another. So it is hard to let my guard down.
But I am off steroids. I am off methotrexate (for nearly a year now). I will always have lingering side effects from those two drugs. I will always have scarring in my eyes, I will always have vision problems.
Mainly I see “floaters”. I also have difficulty transitioning from darkness to bright light. It seriously takes me awhile to adjust.
I have nausea and stomach issues from the steroid and methotrexate combo.
But I have my vision mainly intact. For that I am thankful.
So just hoping to get back on my feet.
Still living with my parents, hoping to be out of here in a few months.
Work exhausts me, but I’m managing.
It has been two long years with this autoimmune shit. I know it isn’t over. But it is nice to be able to take a breather.
