Re: visit to the eye doctor today

Hi, Mike- I would strongly suggest you go see one of the specialists in Denver. Your eye being so scarred, your eyes not dialating, the floaters, etc. need to be examined by a specialist in OID. You know you have lost vision to this disease. Don't wait- go to an OID specialist ASAP. You need to do t...

Re: Pat, Welcome to the group

Pat- I also have multiple AI problems. This makes it difficult to control Uveitis, but it can be done. YOu want to find treatment sooner rather than later for your eyes, as Uveitis WILL blind you if not treated properly. I know- I have 10 degree vision fields (normal is about 90-100), and the vision...

Odia- Hi! I reverse the colors on screen to help with eyestrain. You can find this feature under the Accessibility Options on your computer. This is usually located by going into the My Computer menu. If you change the colors on screen, and then hold the CTRL key and scroll up with your mouse, you c...

Re: Dear Mike

Hey, Tango! I have a movement disorder of sleep- whatever I am doing in my head when I dream, I act out in my sleep. It is a sleep disorder unrelated to my Uveitis. Stinks on ice for my poor hubby sometimes, as I am very strong in my sleep, and sometimes punch and kick and throw elbows. I have bruis...

Mike-

Sorry so long in replying. I've been in a pickle with the light issues for a few days. Much better today. Yes, those tests will be helpful. Will mention them to Dr.C. the 10th. Thanks, Mikey.

Re: Lynn, Welcome to the group!

Re: Lynn, Welcome to the group!

Mike- He would enjoy it if I'd let him see me do it!! I send him outside. Yes, even in the winter. Since I don't know what I look like, I'm terribly self-conscious, especially since I've NEVER been able to dance. (Don't know how) He likes to tease, and he doesn't mean any harm, but I'd be crushed if...

Re: Lynn, Welcome to the group!

Mike- My body started to go haywire in 2003. I had a small female cancer, which I was told was unrelated to HPV. I had a cryosurgery to remove the cancer from my cervix, then had to have another one a month later. Then I started my period and it never stopped. I eventually became anemic, I was in al...

Re: Lynn, Welcome to the group!

Sorry about that. I should have looked into that a bit futher before I posted. :oops: Still, I do want the best for our members here, and I am searching for a way to get to Baltimore myself. I am certain I will find a way. Until then I am holding most of my disease processes at bay with Humira and L...

Re: Lynn, Welcome to the group!

Lynn- I hope you can get proper care from a specialist qualified to deal with these diseases. It was about two years before I got any kind of decent care, because I didn't know any better. I ended up with a host of serious visin problems due to Uveitis, and am now legally blind. Many of my symptoms ...

Oh, CRUD!!!! That stinks on ICE! Feel better, please, Mikey. I am in a much better frame of mind today. The sun finally came out for the first time in days...

Re: A Small Success

How Sweet! Thanks, Mikey! Tiny was a real dog I had, I basically stole her from my retard cousin for that very reason. She did not have such a happy ending, I am sad to say. But there was nothing I could do. My cousin came to my house, took Tiny back home, and tied her up outside. The dog laid down ...
