Eye and Healthy Issue Update

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Hi Sparkbuddies...
I am writing to let you all know that I am experiencing some major health problems that make me not able to be on the computer as much. I have multiple organ autoimmune issues that have been relatively under control for the last year and a half and have made it possible for me to be very active with sparkpeople. The last 2 weeks have been not fun for me and the part of my immune system that attacks my eyes is very active right now. This has resulted in eye pain, swelling, vision difficulty and rashes around my eyes. I am currently under treatment but being on the computer, reading and doing eye use activities needs to be limited for the present!
Wanted to let each of you know that I plan to continue to log my food, exercise as able and check in with my sparkfriends on my teams when my eyes allow but the rest of my spark activities...(virtual bike ride blog, long message posts etc.) are on hold for now. I am hoping that by cutting back on any eye activities my eyes will heal faster and I will feel better soon!!!
Keep the spark going and know that I will keep my commitments to a healthier you and me as I continue to spark but in a limited fashion for right now!! Thanks for you support and friendship and encouragement. Smiles Barb

    Barb - I really hope you are feeling better soon and that your eye problem is cleared up quickly. We all know how active you are on Spark and, although you will miss it, you have to take care of your sight first and foremost!

Look forward to your active return! xo Susan

    Continuing to pray for healing . Also use the tools of your computer to make the font as large as possible for less eye strain. Also play a little with color and brightness of screen to see if any of those things will help.

Father God, please touch the eyes of this dear friend with healing and comfortableness. We love her and want only the very best for her.
