I am 69 yrs old, woke up 2/8/18 and was blind in my right eye. Within a weeks time I was diagnosed with GCA, started 60mg of prednisone. Vision has not returned. I get bruised up easily and the bruises bleed from the 81 mg of aspirin I take every other day. Now, I am down to 40 mg and am just extremely tired. I fall asleep in my recliner, I sleep 13 and 14 hours at times...this is just not me. I still have to work and work part time on a farm. Was nice to see on here I am not the lone ranger. Has anyone else lost their vision? Any uplifting testimonies? My wife and I have a 7 year of son (adopted) and some days I am just sad. Now it appears I have sun poisoning on my face, I have the moon face, I am the heaviest I have ever been. ...
