I have been having some problems, actually when do I not have some problems? The pressure is building up behind my eye, and I must have surgery next week to relieve the pressure.
It’s been slowly building up, I have felt it, apart from the usual pain, my eye has been hurting. It gets itchy and sore, it’s irritated and its blurry and sometimes I just can’t see at all out of my eye. On the positive side, I have had this before and it only affects one eye at a time. I would really hate to have both eyes affected at the same time.
So what happens is the blood and fluid seem to rush around the one eye, the small capillaries can burst and I get really bad blood-shot eye or hemorrhage in the eye that is affected. I weep blood like some sacred statue, but I can’t perform a miracle healing on myself. I have a patch to wear so that my eye is not affected by light and under that I wear a band-aid for the weeping, if I didn’t someone would start praying at my feet and that would just go to my heat and God would strike me with a lightening bolt.
Again, I point out that I am lucky, the first time I had this, I didn’t know what it was, and had a nasty incident with a racist paramedic. This time I knew something was wrong and had time to see a doctor and to get it all organised to have surgery next week. While it’s been annoying and frustrating, I can’t go anywhere, I can’t read or watch TV for long before the soreness & fuzzy of the good eye is way too much to deal with. God Damn it, this has had an impact on my tweeting!!
My vision in the gammy eye will improve after the surgery, you don’t realise when it slowly bit by bit affects the eye sight, it’s not until one day you realise that things in the distance look like a Jackson Pollock painting. It’s rather funny that now at this point, with the eye shut the swirling around in black or blurred white is definitely a Jackson Pollock piece.
So until next week I am doing my best pirate walk and talk .
