The Mom Who Weeps 'Diamonds'

7 posts in this topic

A MUM has told how she is left in agony whenever she cries — because her tears contain razor-sharp “diamond” crystals.

Jody Smith, 35, suffers from cystinosis, a rare inherited disease which causes a build- up of an acid called cystine.

It forms as tiny crystals, which gather in her heart and lungs and fall from her eyes whenever they water, sparkling like jewels.

Speaking about her illness for the first time, Jody said: “My doctor and husband say the crystals look like beautiful diamonds, but to me they’re a painful nuisance.

“I know they sound lovely but it’s really awful, especially when the sun’s in my eyes.

The thought of something as delicate as an eye being scratched is unsettling enough to make me shield my eyes in disgust.
