This is so sad.
Roseanne Barr recently opened up to the Daily Beast about a medical condition that will ultimately lead to her blindness.
She describe the condition and revealed medicinal marijuana is helping her through the harder days:
“I have macular degeneration and glaucoma, so it’s [marijuana] good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes. It’s a good medicine for a lot of things.”
The 62-year-old went on to say the doctors aren’t able to give her a specific timeframe of when she’ll lose the rest of her sight. Roseanne shared:
“No, they can’t. My vision is closing in now. It’s something weird. But there are other weird things. That one’s harsh, ’cause I read a lot, and then I thought, ‘Well, I guess I could hire somebody to read for me and read to me.’ But I like words and I like looking. You do what you have to do. I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥y’know, living it up. My dad had it, too.”
That’s so awful to hear!
At least Roseanne enjoying her eyesight as much as she can before she can’t use it anymore.
Sigh, you never really know what you have until you lose it. Thinking about you, Ro!
