Emotions and Healing
This week has been quite the week with emotions. Usually I'm not emotional, I can keep the tears at bay even during a heart wrenching movie. Now when I'm worried about my health, well then the waterworks begin! Monday had me worried and crying about my eyes, so I went to an urgent eye care clinic at the big big hospital and saw an ophthalmologist.
You see, I started with a simple eye infection and those antibiotic drops caused corneal abrasions that were not healing with subsequent drops prescribed. So after the third visit and my eyes looking worse I knew I needed to switch doctors.
So now the good news, after two days of yet again new antibiotic eye drops, I went for a return visit for a recheck with the reddest eyes (so ugly!). However, my corneas are nearly healed and I've now started a steroid drop that has reduced the inflammation significantly. This is by far the best my eyes have felt in a long long time. I see her (the doctor) next week. I feel I'll be there frequently for lots of rechecks and monitoring of my eye pressures.
I'm so grateful for this doctor! In turn, my anxiety (and ridiculous tears) have lowered and I'm once again thinking about knitting and projects and other little joys in my life. I am furiously working on the mitts and I finished a hat for yet another gift.
Thank you all for the well wishes here and on instagram. I am feeling so much better. I hope you have a great weekend!!
