Nuisance Factor? I DO need to keep reminding myself of that! I said it yesterday! I've said it a bunch of times today! UGH!!! Why can I NOT be patient with myself or comfortable being relatively idle?Throwback to childhood, I guess, when I wasn't allowed to be idle!
I did get out this morning, to meet with a new and very delightful career counseling client. We hit it off instantly, and I look forward to continuing the process with her. I drove there, despite the "claw" and the half-vision, and did some errands along the way home.
Half-vision? Well that''s another story! Last year when I had my first cataract surgery (not 100% successful!), I knew I'd need to have the other (left) eye done sooner or later. In the interim, I was fitted with a contact lens for the left eye - which at least has made it possible to function fairly normally. Totally disgruntled with the ophthalmologist and his entire staff/services, my optometrist saved the day (year!) by properly fitting me with this contact lens. A new doctor will perform the next cataract surgery on June 13, but in order for her office to PROPERLY take those measurements, I cannot wear my contact for a whole WEEK! I intentionally chose this week because I knew I'd be somewhat out of commission while recovering from the hand surgery.
But I am disoriented from the differences in vision. Everything that requires vision (EVERYTHING!) is a bit of a challenge. So the things I might chose to do while not playing tennis or knitting are not so comfortable after all. TWO more days like this, and then I can re-insert my contact and at least not feel so lopsided or eye-strained. Reading, TV, computing are all possible, but my head and eyes hurt.
OK, enough venting, complaining, bitching, and moaning! You need not read this - it's really for the purpose of doing something, passing time, and just plain venting!
