Okay I have to confess what has happened to me for the last few weeks and why my blogs have been sparse and far from being constant.
As you all who read and do follow, you have seen that I have been very diligent in posting to my blog at least three times a week daily. I also would comment often and a lot! That excluding the month of February when I posted everyday for 28 days.
Not bad, but still I haven’t come close to the reason why.
I now have to wear glasses.
For the last 8 weeks I’ve had a hard time staying on the computer for more than two hours at a time. So I would be on the computer and would try to comment on as many blogs as possible, shut down the laptop, take some meds for my headache, get back on, eyes burn to the point where I feel as if someone has taken a candle to my eyes, shut down the computer/laptop, rest then do it all over again.
Tiresome right? Wait it gets better!
Two weeks ago, I couldn’t look at the computer before my eyes would tear and burn and I would have an incredible headache. This led to my seeing an ophthalmologist yesterday since I last seen an eye doc in 1993.
So I officially have a very lazy left eye that is causing my right eye to work harder because it is not pulling its weight around here. So watching TV was a chore where I had to always have a hot washcloth handy to put over my eyes during the commercials.
I didn’t dare drive at night for fear I’d go over a ditch and land in a pasture decorated with cow poo-poo.
And I so badly wanted to read a book besides ‘New Moon’ but the large print selection at the library did not look too tempting.
So there you have it, the excuse of the week (or the last two weeks). Now I can type in bed, in the kitchen, in the commode if I want to thanks in all to these wonderful eye drops courtesy of Dr. W and some wonderful painkillers that make me feel as limp as a noodle. I’ll get my wonderful glasses next week soon as they fill in the prescription. Oh YAY me!!
Sorry if the sarcasm is extra heavy today. I don’t like celebrating the fact that my age has caught up with my eyes.
