well, that was unexpected

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I have to start out with the positive. I did a lot better with the news than I would have even a couple weeks ago. I didn't over react, and I didn't turn to food to smother my worry in chocolate and sugar, or something deep fried. This is a huge improvement.

But it still sucks.

My eyesight has been getting crummier for a while now, and it was finally in the budget to get my eyes checked. I figured it was just that I needed a different prescription for my glasses.
Not exactly. Apparently I have keratocornus in my right eye . How it was explained to me is that I have a progressive degneration of the cornea of the eye which causes the cornea to become misshappen.
Good news is that it can be treated for a while with hard contacts.
Bad news is that my doctor hasn't ever seen an eye as bad as mine and told me i'm pretty well looking at having to have a corneal transplant or go blind in my right eye.
That was Friday.
now I get to go see the specialist and find out what he has to say. Fun times.
At least it explains the crummy vision and the freaky light sensitivity. emoticon

    First of all, let me just say that I love that you started with the positive. I think people who can focus on the positive (even while acknowledging the negative) end up being happier in life, in general.

    Second of all, GREAT JOB on not turning to food for comfort!!!! That's very impressive, and I can't say that I could do the same in the light of such news.

    And you know what? At least you weren't told that you'll go blind with no other options. Yeah, you might end up needing a transplant. But at least that means there's HOPE. :-)
