I got my first at 12yrs.,now I'm 51. I know the pain,long lonely nights suffering by myself,I know rolling on the floor,pacing until I'm exhausted and collaspe on the floor. I know the blurred vision and blood red right eye,tears,and I know the helplessness of family members and I know the fear that my kids felt growing up with a dad that was a sufferer. I know what it's like to suddenly interrup plans,dinner,work,childrens activities,and everything else when one comes. I know the fear when it goes waiting and wondering when it will return. I know it all and I don't know any answers,all I know is that all other pain I've felt in my life regardless of the reason is a walk in the park,and I do know the love,support,and sympathy of my family. One more thing,I know the frustration of finally finding a doctor who understood then he retired and now I know once again what it's like to run into apathy in the medical field, but I will keep looking and I will keep coping,after all, I'm very experienced. Keep the faith and be strong.
