About Me: Female, 34, Hickory, NC, member since Apr 2008
Well, the main reason I am here is due to my anxiety and panic disorder. Light normally onsets my anxiety more than anything. That being said, I try to live as normal as life as I can. It is tough at times, sometimes, I find myself hurrying to escape stores and offices
[More] just to take a breather, but try to always return.
I still enjoy things in life though, like being outdoors, playing with my dogs, art, working out, movies and concerts.
I am a graphic designer so I am behind the computer a good bit of the day.
I like learning about my situation as well as others and getting to know similar people to help me through it.
Hi, my name is Miles. I have to ask a question, if you dont mind. One of my best friends was diagnosed with severe photophobia and she has optic nerve damage in her left eye to the point where it doesnt dialate? She does have glasses though. She was told serveral years ago by her optometrist to see an opthamologist.... she is very afraid. Is there anything I might be able to tell her? And is your photophobia a physical problem alone? How long has it been an issue? Do you have very light colored eyesa? Do you have corrective lenses for any other eye problems? I know Ive been very long winded, but I am very curious as to how you are doing with all of "this"
