Yesterday, I started pulse 9, I normally wait 4 weeks between pulses but decided to pick up the schedule since I am feeling ok. I went to eye doctor Monday as my daughter did not pass school eye exam so I had to take her in. I made an appointment for myself too. My daughter was given a script for glasses and we pick them up next week. Dr. was concerned that I had not been in for 2 1/2 years. I feel like a big part of my life is going to doctors and I get so tired of it. I was born with small cataracts that my eye doctor wants to remove so I can have 20/20 vision. My corrected vision allows me to drive therefore as long as I can drive my catarats are staying with me. My doctor doesn't understand this as my insurance covers...why wouldn't I want perfect vision. He said it will have 0 impact on my MS. I say famous last words, as the procedure will not have an impact on his health but it will mine. Why doctors do not understand this is because it hasn't been studied. I know just from talking to others, most procedures on people with MS are not easy recoveries. I guess I didn't explain that every procedure I have had since I have had MS causes me loss of function. I think I will write a letter to him as he told me as I was leaving his office, "your vision will fail in the next few years and I will try my best to correct with contacts but I am not going to be able to do it - go to the drug store and buy over the counter glasses so you can see." His tone is angry. I asked him why this was going to happen and he explains I am aging. He than thanked me for coming in to his office. The facts are in the last 2 1/2 years my vision hasn't changed and my cataracts have remained unchanged. His other point is if and when catarats change I will need surgery. I am prepared to have this done when this happens. Not until this happens. My brother is blind in left eye - some condition similar to macular degeneration. I need to get him on the protocol but he is even more stubborn than me. He does not believe that one treatment can fix so many disorders. He always had poor vision, he finally had lasik and was able to see great for about a month and than he eye failed him. The good news to report is my husband had 0 reaction to NAC over the two week period. My daughter is next. I will let you know how this pulse goes.
