Iritis is the inflammation of the coloured part of your eye (iris). It also affects the front part of the eye between the cornea and the iris (anterior chamber). Iritis can lead to serious problems. It can cause severe vision loss and even blindness. (Cedars Sinai)
Obviously, I wasn’t expecting to develop Iritis. It has become one of many things to work on in regards to a healthier lifestyle. Most of the time I generally try to eat an anti inflammatory diet but the last 10 months I certainly have not. It has been an all the everything and it has been a nice little break. The reality is though that my health needs more from me than the effort I have been putting forth. Consistently putting my nutrition first is hard and sometimes I take it too seriously only to fall off the wagon completely. Building a balance is what I strive for with all things and this certainly will continue to be one.
One thing I have learned about these kinds of things is that they can often lead to a lot of personal growth. More empathy, more knowledge, more of a chance to grow.
Do you suffer from an autoimmune disease?
