I have to say, I'm pretty sick of being in the eye unit at the hospital. My second experience was better than my first, but after my third.. and fourth, I feel pretty sick to my stomach of the sight of it!
I've been miserable before because of my health, but this was something else - l osing your sight is pretty scary! I've learned to cope with pain, but I'm not used to feeling so vulnerable and partially sighted.
You were probably expecting me to say that everything went black. It didn't. I got vivid rainbow hundred-and-thousands type floaters in my vision. Bright tiny little worms of colour, everywhere I looked, even if I shut my eyes.
I'm not disabled, I just do things a little differently, because I have to and that's okay!
Here's what I've been up to in January..
This year, I've decided to do only my share at work.
Over several months I had an MRI, CT, two occiptal nerve blocks, and physical therapy on my neck. It was discovered that I had a buldging disc and arthritis in my neck. One is fixable and one is not. After going over all my symptoms they diagnosed me also with occipital and trigeminal neuralgia.
