Oh bloody Hell, I’ve just had some bad news and I must say, it is making me more than a bit nervous. You see, I’ve been having trouble with my right eye lately and today (after the Optician and the G.P. failed to find anything much wrong with my eye) I went to the Accident and Emergency unit at the Eye Hospital.
To cut a long story short – they found I have a small blood clot in my right eye and “macular oedema”. This is probably a result of having problems with high blood-pressure, over many years. Anyway, I barely have any central vision in the eye now and I have to wait six weeks for a follow-up appointment to “see how it is going”. I may have to have laser surgery but I’m not sure it will get back the vision I’ve lost.
Crap, crap, crap. What if my left eye goes the same way?
I am, as our dear Queen herself would say, shitting a brick. I don’t want to be left unable to read, watch TV, see people’s FACES and use the internet. Maybe I’m being too dramatic and it will clear up. Or maybe I’m not and it won’t. I still have my left eye, so far…
At least now I can stop cleaning my glasses every five minutes, like an obsessive compulsive maniac. It isn’t my glasses that are fogged up – its my em effing EYE.
