Skeye, I'm sorry you are having such a rough time. I've had very mild eye pain from my auto-immune disease and it was annoying, I can't even imagine what you are going through. I wish I had an answer for you as far as school goes, but I did want to share. I was very ill during my college years, I had cancer and even though I didn't know it then I also had my auto-immune disorder which led to chronic kidney stones and I'm talking too many to count on both sides. I had to drop out 3 semesters throughout my 4 years. I did make one of them up by going during the summer(I wish I would have known how nice summer semester was and I would have gone every summer. It was like a whole different school. I don't know where you are going, I went to Penn State so having the smaller classes and layed back atmosphere was really nice). I know that is the last thing you would want to do and I am not advising one way or the other. I just wanted to say that I still was able to do all the things that I had dreamed and worked very hard for. It just wasn't on the same time table.
I wish you all the best!
