Thanks, Nancy, for the very informative post. Yes, I printed it out! After surviving a stressful month at work, I feel like I can take the time to be an active part of this BB once again. Sorry I stranded you for a while.
Just for the record, I am one of the 90% that you spoke of. Maybe with all of the eye problems that I’ve had, other people would put me in the 10%. But, I feel like I’m one of the lucky ones! I’ve had excellent support and care from my doctors, my husband and family were always there when I needed them, and never once did I EVER consider ending it all because of GD! My work and joy on this world is not done yet!
To update my GD friends: My last eyelid retraction (surgery #5) was a success!! I haven’t looked this good in years! (direct quote from my husband)
Wishing you happiness and energy! Debby
