For 393 days I have struggled with Iritis in my right eye...right Iris to be exact. It has been a trying year(and beyond) and there does not seem to be an end in sight (pun intended!). In that time I have been on some form of steroids...steroid eye drops, and injection in my eyeball (yes as wicked as it sounds) and oral prednisolone (which makes you all manic and crazy), with exception of 3 weeks this summer when I had "beat Iritis a**". Sadly when I was in Canada I had a flare up and the good old steroids worked their magic...so magical that now I have steroid induced glaucoma. Lovely. I am now on an oral med that makes me super tired and causes the bottoms of my feet to tingle. All these appointments, specialists and medications because a lovely inherited gene HLA B27...thank you Bateman genes!
Thank you for letting me vent. Really I shouldn't complain because so many have so many serious aliments and I am otherwise healthy. A bit nutty but healthy. Cheers here's to day 394.
