My Diagnosis- Blogs September 2006

September 27th, 2006 @ 07:59 PM I haven't been to school basically all week.
Monday (eyes were going fuzzy/blurry/double vision.)
Tuesday I took my Betaseron injection and had a terrible night.
Today I attempted to go to school, went to 1st period and about 20 minutes of second before my dad picked me up. Cloud-like bubbles in my eye is bothersome. I think I have a lesion there. Something called "optic neuritis". I pray it doesn't last forever, or that I get a lazy eye because of it. That'll ruin my life; not like it's not ruined already from this disease, but lets tack on more.

*insert over-dramatic whiny teenage post*

Tomorrow: MRI @ 9:00am.
Then I'm due for the eye exam. It'll HOPEFULLY tell me if I'll be losing my eye sight.

September 28th, 2006 @ 2:31 PM: I had my MRI this morning at 9:00am. Man, I hate MRIs. I've probably had so many in this short time-frame. I can't even remember.  I see my neurologist later today after he sees all of his patients. I think I'm having that "optic neuritis" and this will solidify my NMO diagnosis from MS or TM...... I hope it's something we can manage and figure out. Eye exam coming up. Time to get this ball started.

September 30th, 2006 @ 11:42 AM: I feel a little bit better today. My eyes are still blurry, but I am managing. I've started to look a life a bit differently. Stop. Take time. Smell those roses. Never give up. My cards being dealt with are pretty crummy, but I must remain strong and positive..... it's all that I have left to myself anyway.
