  •  Being sick (14+ / 0-)

    Had my second surgery in two months to address the same condition because the first one didn't do anything.  This one was significantly more invasive, and even though it was done last Friday, I'm still feeling dreadfully sick.  My family has put off having our T-dinner until Sunday in hope that I will have begun feeling better by then.  That may or may not be true of the effects of the surgery itself.  More worrisome is that my eyesightm the cause of the surgeries, not only seems to have continued to decliine but to have accelerated.  It's hard to be positive and upbeat when there's a very real chance one is losing something as basic as one's eyesight, and that the diagnosis that a veritable team of doctors have been proceeding on for a year might be entirely wrong.  If they are right, then this last surgery was also the last round they have in the chamber for treating the condition.  To say there's a shadow over my Thanksgiving is true in both the figurative and literal senses.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
