Vision in my right eye is continuing to improve. I can still see the big black dot being the gas bubble in my eye but it now covers less than a quarter of my vision in that eye and is decreasing in size daily.
Wow, that lying on my stomach for 2 weeks was a trial. It took me a few days to come to the realization that huh, yes this sucks, but there really is nothing I can do about it so I might as well make the best of it. With that simple change in thinking the days became easier and much more enjoyable. OK, maybe I cheated a little and didn’t spend the entire 45 minutes of every hour in that face down position but I was pretty good about it. It is paying off as my vision is quite good, though things still have that warped look to them.
It really is surprising what a little shift in attitude can do your whole frame of mind and quality of your day.
The first few days of lying down I was not in the best of spirits, feeling kind of down. I had thoughts running through my head like: ” I really don’t know how many days I have left on this planet and I really don’t want to waste them like this” (being stuck laying face down on the bed) Somewhere along the line the thought change to: “I really don’t know how many days i have left and I really don’t want to waste them like this”. (feeling out of sorts and grumpy). My days were then a lot better. Now I am not going to say I was having a lot of fun but I certainly was not miserable or unhappy about the situation. I tried my meditations but the unusual position seemed to just put me to sleep. It gave me time for a lot of really deep thinking about my life and life in general. The more i really thought the more it became clear to me I am very content with my life. Are there some areas of my life I would like to be different well yeah. Hey just look at the title of the blog.
This may be hard to understand but whole business has helped me become the person I am today and I am cntent with that.
