I am doing serum eye drops, that seems to help most for me…I am also doing five other things, but the best is the serum eye drops…

Thanks Sue, your input was good to know. I am going to talk to my derm next week also. I am advocating for the biopsy to be sure…
I mentioned to the provider in email today that it burns using the steriod…Compounding as a cream is a good idea…

A psychiatrist can't help with this. This is strictly a MEDICAL condition. A cognitive therapist might help deal with the frustrations dealing with it, but would be probably the extent of the help. This is not "in your head" but a direct very poorly understood medical condition….Thanks
Isn't it safer to wear a N-95? I have an N-99, but Mayo Clinic won't let you wear it inside because they say it protects you but not other people from your air. So I don't think the cloth masks they hand out give much protection….Be nice is someone who knows chimed it.
This situation has been a mess, with the CDC first saying they weren't necessary..
Also, why doesn't insurance cover them? Since they are now "medically necessary?"

Anyone doing this every year for high risk, rare neoplasms?
I have done it once, had a biopsy for something that was “nothing” so I hear this happens a lot. My next one is next week. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen again and nothing is found. Not a fun procedure and I have mixed feelings since last time it was “nothing” and I am allergic to contrast dye.
Wish me luck..
So I just joined a major autoimmune biorepository at Mayo Clinic.
I joined because we need answers and I am tired of being told "we don't know" and taking drugs meant for something else that MIGHT work.
I am tired of being told but I don't fit into what little is know about what they know about my autoimmune disease and having it listed as "her general autoimmunity" because it is not understood.
I am aware that as women, we lag behind in being researched and treated.
I can't count the times what I have was grouped as the "flu" by a doctor who is just guessing at best and finding out a few years later that I have a very unusual immune system.
We need answers now, so I am trying to make that happen, for myself and every other person who is being told "we don't know" and given a drug meant for something else….
