Awareness of TED
Last updated: July 2023
It's means people understanding symptoms and not thinking you're just lazy or understanding that you can't control the fact some days are good and some are horrible.
It also means that there is more awareness into possible research to treat this disease. It also means that someone may understand that you can't control how the sun affects our eyes, the itchiness, the tearing, the burning feeling like you want to remove your eyes. It affects me every day and no one understands the pain and irritation it causes. Maybe more awareness would help people's family, friends and spouses know that we can't control this it controls us.
