Re: loss of sight


Melody...what works for you? I get horrible headaches too. If they EVER legalize POT...LOL...then I won't have that problem!!! HA That was the only thing in college that got rid of my migraines. Back then, I got them so bad I wanted to just die so I wouldn't hurt anymore. I feel for people who get migraines. I got my first one at 12 years old. Lasted for 2 days. I remember being in a dark room, my mother putting cold washrags on my head...and I hurt too bad to cry. If I scrunched up my face to cry...it hurt even worse!!!

Noreen: Oh, my dear, I sympathize with you over your migraines...have
suffered from excruciating migraines since I was 13...been on just about
every medication known to man and tried just about every known
"cure"...got sick and tired of being a walking pharmaceutical and have
resorted to sticking with what I know works for me, rather than the
latest, greatest trend the current specialists are up to. Sometimes the
headaches are so bad, I actually hallucinate...really freaked me out the
first time it happened. Do you have a major medical center nearby that
has a specific clinic for migraine sufferers? Often times, local MD's,
with the best of intentions, are at a loss to treat migraines
effectively. I will be praying for you that help is near at hand. :-)

<br>gardenchat-owner@hort.net writes:<br>>Reading is something so basic
to my life that I fear for my sanity<br>>should I ever lose my
sight<br>This hits close to home. I've been battling debilitating
migraines this <br>summer. Debilitating to the point of not being able
to function at all, close to <br>suicidal, losing vision, motorskills,
etc. Anyway, in the process of seeing <br>specialists, etc. to find the
cause and possible cure, I had to see an <br>opthamologist....first time
EVER, since I had always had perfect 20/20 vision. No <br>cause or cure
was found for the migraines, but an abnormality in the optic nerve
<br>which I was told is the beginning stage of glaucoma....extremely
rare for my <br>age. To make a long story short, I have now glasses for
reading, glasses for <br>driving, glasses for the pc, etc. etc. My
"condition" will be monitored <br>closely from now on. After this summer
though I am just happy that I am able to see <br>at all and function.
However, it got me to thinking though....I think I <br>would much more
easily cope with the loss of hearing, or anything else over the <br>loss
of sight. Not so much for the reading, although I love it....but there
<br>are alternatives, but for the pure pleasure of seeing nature. Not to
be able to <br>enjoy a newly opened flower, or seeing the birds during
migration flying over <br>our house, or a butterfly going through the
stages of it's life. I think <br>that I would miss these things the
most.<br><br>Noreen<br>zone 9<br>Texas Gulf
