Hmmmmm - kind of odd after my most recent post

Mom Kim here AGAIN!
So I have been lazy - yes, I admit it-
as well as busy taking care of a few chores so 
have not posted since my
almost a week ago.

In that post I mentioned that my 
eye/vision which had been worsening was now
somewhat stable.
FAST FORWARD TO TODAY (Thursday, 10/23).
I WAS scheduled to just go and get my contact lense replaced with a new one.
HOWEVER-
for the past couple of days I've been noticing a bit of a change ... and NOT a good change either.
I was not entirely surprised by this but 
my eye doctor did find that my vision was about HALF as good as it had been-
was about 20/60 and today was 20/150.
Now while this does sound bad- 
that is DISTANT vision which I do not really use since I don't drive anyway.
What I am most concerned with is my 
READING vision-
can I still read and do my job-
I can still blog.
 The cloudiness is what has changed for the worse along with the development of a 
small epithelial defect 
(like a skin tear on the surface of your eye).
Once again I have an appointment with my 
cornea specialist next Tuesday-
sooner if the need is there.
I am already doing everything else(medicine).

In that post (link above) I talked about 
not doing things and letting life pass me by-
part of it too is the "what ifs".
There were some things I had stopped doing because of the "what ifs"-

"What if walking the dogs had a 
bad effect on my vision?"

"What if while getting Shiloh or Diva Shasta ready to visit messed up my eye?"

Now I do continue working but "what if" all the computer use is having a bad effect on my eye?
I know I have read that it can so why do I 
continue to work altho I'm suppose to 
not use the computer to enjoy my life at home?

So now I have to ask myself-
WHY have I given up walking the Beaglebratz 
AND 
doing therapy visits-
I am STILL having problems with my eye.

Ok - that is enough for now.
Hopefully the Beaglebratz will be bak 
for the next post.

And I almost forgot since I'm not all that comfortable doing so-
but I would appreciate your prayers and POTP to
heal that defect and the cloudiness improves.

prayers on the way.. did you talk to your eye doctor about your list of what ifs? i would if you did not. find out what you should should not do and then make your choices... our eyes are the most important thing we have, or at least to me it is... so sorry it is worse...
