When in doubt......pray!

Walking into the eye Dr. today, I was scared to death! I had been told last Friday that I had glaucoma and I needed to take some eyedrops each night to lower my eye pressure, and to come back in a week! One of the longest weeks in my life.....but what a reality check! Once again! I have done pretty good this week for my food choices although my Birthday was Wed. and I did enjoy my cake! I find out today for sure there is no diabetes in my eyes, the eyedrops lowered my eye pressure back to normal and I am pre-glaucoma. This means if I take care of myself and get regular eye exams, I should be able to see up until the good Lord takes me home. I am however, still blind as a bat without radar, and my glasses will cost $858.92! Not sure when I will be able to get them, but I am so thankful I still can see like always! I am so thankful also for sparkpeople, because I am following this better than anything before! emoticon

    What a RELIEF!!! Good for you for being proactive about your health -- that "pre" diagnosis means you were smart enough to check it out. And your Spark plan offers you the best chance in town to "take care of yourself." With your positive attitude -- choosing to see this diagnosis as an opportunity -- you're bound to stay on the right path. I'm so happy for you!
