In short I've spent most of the past three and half weeks staring at the insides of my eyelids!
A relapse that amongst other things affected my vision, followed by high dose steroids that made my heart go crazy.....well I've been really poorly.
So did I see much on the backs of my eyelids?
Uh not much - at first at least. But as I've started to improve and my brain has started to wake I had plenty of time to consider what's important to me. Had a little time to be scared too. And of course I indulged in a little escapism via my imagination that although stunted has not completely died.
I've really really missed reading. Resting is no fun if you can't read. Or watch tv or do anything much. The last couple of days I've managed to read very briefly (like Christmas cards) but cause the words are blurred and don't tend to stay still it causes pressure and pain that isn't pleasant. But I'm now able to watch a bit of TV at least and am a little more sociable when people come to visit. .
I'm missing my online blogging anf Twitter connections - hope you're all enjoying the festive season. A big shout out to Helen Hunt & DJ Kirkby - hope you're both recovering well!
Happy Christmas & a fantastic New Year 2010 to you all.
Hope to be back in contact soon. Hubbie is reading me some emails and comments and keeping me partly updated but can't wait to catch up properly.
