Observant readers might’ve noticed that the blog has been quiet lately—really quiet, I haven’t posted for an entire week! (That’s the longest stretch ever since I started blogging.) Mind you, this wasn’t by choice; I was under strict orders not to use the computer, read, drive, or do anything that required intensive eye focus.
It all started last Monday. I woke up with a strange sensation in my right eye (fluttery, lid spasms, and very sore). Many of you know that I’ve been experiencing this on and off since 2014. Sometimes the eye is better, other times, it’s worse. Monday was much, much worse. In addition to all of the uncomfortable symptoms I’ve been dealing with, a new problem popped up: a slight gray dot in my vision. It doesn’t happen constantly, mainly just in bright light/glare, but it’s unpleasant and kind of scary. I called my doctor immediately and he thinks it’s probably a harmless floater combined with severe muscle strain. I’m going in for tests in April and will know more then.
Needless to say, this has thrown my life into chaos. Not being able to do everyday things that I usually take for granted has been so hard. There have been many moments of tears and despair. I’m feeling a little better now, and I can see, obviously, but the right eye is definitely not the way it should be. I also have constant headaches and wobbly balance because my vision is off.
One of the things that I’ve missed the most is blogging. Getting to create new posts, share fun things, and interact with my readers is what gives me so much joy! I really do love all of you and it’s so nice to be back.
For the time being, there may be a lack of new content. I’ll probably be on social media less and I may not be answering emails as promptly. Even though I feel so guilty about this, getting rest and focusing on my health has to come first.
I would love to hear advice/kind words from anyone who has time and prayers are especially appreciated!
