My mom was diagnosed with wet macular degeneration 2 years back, she was 58 then.
Initially it was just one eye and very quickly she had lost the vision on that one, the doc said it was due to an eye shock and later she was diagnosed with the same thing on the right eye. She takes the injection every month, it has however increased to an interval to 3 months now. This time we are more careful.
As a single child and also living away from home, this has been devastating for me cause my mom is still moderately young and she is just so so full of life. My dad is super caring, he cooks now and takes real good card of my mom.
I read some of the documents and stories here and I didn’t feel alone and it felt like we are all in this together.
My mom is very very strong, she is impeccably positive. We don’t know what the future holds for her in terms of her vision but she still has her spirits high.
I don’t have any question to post,
I just wanted to thank each one of you who wrote on the forum and shared their stories. It fills me with hope and makes me feel so much better.
