I keep getting rounds of side effects of either a medication or one of my autoimmune diseases. Sjogren's, dry eyes and all, and I found out today that I have cataracts (both eyes). It's from long term prednisone medication.
For several months thought hat problems with my eyesight was due to my glasses. The other day I was driving on the freeway and couldn't see the signs. Oh my. Yikes, I was driving blind.
This time I'm not sad or stoic or depressed. I'm just plain angry. I know that when these cataracts are removed the outcome will be just great. But I still feel this way. I can't drive. I have an opthamologist consult. New lenses will be made for my eyes. Then I'll have surgery with one eye fixed. I still won't be able to drive until the other eye is fixed. I will be out of circulation for four months.
I even am sick of the way I feel. I don't know if anyone else has been through all this, but it sure interferes with my life.
