Hi SAS, I Know it’s hard sometimes not to feel self pity,I also know it gets you nowhere, It’s still hard nevertheless. I’ve been going through this roller coaster ride,that’s how I describe it, for a few years now, I’ve had a few eyelid surgeries, and I know that things will never be the way they use to be,(before GD),I try not to dwell on the past and look forward to a hopefully bright future. I don’t know about you,but at certain times I go through periods of anxiety and depression, For some people with GD this is “normal” that’s what the doctors tell me anyway. This is not the best time to be feeling down,(or anytime for that matter!) After all this time I should be use to the “down” times,but I’m not. I wish you the best with your eyes,hopefully there will not be to many problems for you. The best of luck,I sincerely wish you a healthy, happy Christmas. Shana.
