When dealing with a chronic disease such as glaucoma,  victories do not come often. Trying to slow down the inevitable march of a disease that has only one controllable risk factor is mostly humbling. But, occasionally we are rewarded with some successes.  I hope you’ll find inspiration in reading the following article written by one of my most inspirational patients. It’s a rich piece, full of many issues, including the state of our health care, mental illness and substance abuse, and  dealing with overwhelming adversity.  To anyone who is struggling with life’s challenges, please read and be inspired.
