Diagnosis
MD

Eyes Affected
Right

Eye Color
Brown

Age at Diagnosis
39

Treatment
Diagnosed by my opthomologist. My first appointment with an RS isn't until May. The letters on the chart were blurry for my right eye, which was unusual. I had thought that I just needed a new prescription. I finally asked him what was wrong. He said "I'm not sure yet."

Family History
Adopted. The only thing I know is that my biological mom had melanoma.

Impact on My Life
I'm worried about the "what ifs". I know that I am not alone, but I do live alone. The financial aspects scare me. I make enough to live on barely, but not to save anything.

Employment
Full time staffing coordinator/office manager.

More About Me
I love theatre. I am currently stage managing a show. I travel, cook, paint read and make amazing cookies. I have a 7 year old kitty who thinks she is a 7 year old child.
