My Diagnosis- Blogs July 2006

July 7th, 2006 @ 5:28 PM: I go into the hospital on Sunday (ew!) for plasma exchange. I'm trying to make myself laugh, even when I'm sick. I still don't understand. I probably never will. Thankful to be alive.. I guess? I don't know. I don't know how to deal with this Haha.

July 21st, 2006 @ 9:12 PM: Post update. I went to my eye doctor at 3:45pm. She said that there were no significant inflammation in the eye itself. (That's a relief). NMO is pretty wicked to my health; I wonder when I'll get a job with this disease. Can I even work? I don't know at this point. My mom signed me up for some yoga classes in San Marco, that should be fun! She said the gentle movement will help me. I want to spend every living moment with my mom, but I know I can't. There's no hurt in trying- right? She's such a strong woman. Taking care of me, missing work to be there with me. I wonder if we're super behind on bills because of this? I'm sorry mom. I'm sorry for everything.

July 29th, 2006 @ 7:19 PM: My neurologist is putting me on a MS therapy treatment called Betaseron. It's an injectable that goes just under the skin and gives me a dose of the medication. It's supposed to reduce the number of flares in patients with MS, we're hoping that it helps with NMO.... Here is to hoping.
