Hi everyone,
I'm back home from the hospital. Still trying to recover. First I had high fever for a week and was hospitalized, then they sent me home and the same day I developed complications in my eyes (something called optic neuritis among other things). Basically lost sight in my right eye. Got readmitted, had IV steroids. It's not pretty. I'm still half-blind, can't read, can't drive, can't type, can hardly watch TV plus weak as hell from the steroid pills that I continue taking and headaches. I haven't been reading your blogs, will have to catch up later. They say it takes time, but how much? Right now I'm typing this with my right eye closed...

Oh well, I don't want to complain too much. It's going to take as long as it has to. I sure miss blogging and as soon as I can see myself in the mirror again (hopefully without gasping) I'll be back.


  1. Glad you're all right, Tanya! What the heck happened?? You look after yourself, okay?

  2. I had an auto-immune condition in 2001 for which I had to take steroids. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Stay focused on your recovery and DO NOT give in to any negativity! I know that it is scary, but you must keep a positive attitude. Keep us posted! (Pun intended)
