    Default Let's Not Ignore the Eyes

    Well I went to get new glasses today and was in for a big surprise. No new glasses for me until I go see a specialist because it appears that I have Ocular Neuritis or inflammation of the optic nerve. I have to say the way I figured it out was very interesting and had I known what to look for I would have known about it much earlier but this post isn't about that. This post is to remind all of you that once you have been diagnosed with ANY AI disease it means that there is inflammation in your body and you have to keep an eye on ALL parts of yourself, including the eyes.

    Get your eyes checked yearly and pay attention to pain and changes not just because of meds but because of disease. If you notice that you see colors differently from one eye to the other go in to see the eye doctor even if it is not time for your yearly appointment.. You only have one set of eyes and they have to last.

    Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
