Week ago, I noticed driving to work that I had a seriously increased number of floaters in my vision, mostly in the left eye (you get those when you’re as near-sighted as I am, have had them since I was 12) with a ton of flashes and what the heck is that bright circle anyway?
Let it ride for 24 hours. Got really annoyed but called out at work on Wednesday and got in to be seen by the eye doctor on an emergency basis. Think I might have a retinal detachment, need to rule it out.
Well, I had a tear. A “teeny tiny” one, according to the doctor who saw me - probably the size of a pixel, with no detachment. Four hours later, the fella is sitting next to me and this amazing argon laser and we’re going to do surgery on my eye and it’ll be no aftercare, back to work tomorrow and in 30 days, probably won’t need to do anything more.
Except it had bled a little bit. The next day, I was looking through a cloud of black specks and by Friday, I thought I might be worse and had to get in to be seen again on an emergency basis. Thankfully, it’s just that little bit of blood diffusing as it resolves, it should be mostly gone in a few weeks (that period of time again). But it’s like looking through a dirty glass and I’m doing a ton of work right now with computer screens that need me to see things quickly, accurately and it’s so frustrating I could cry - but I don’t dare.
And this very laid back job I got? Went Hyde on me, grew fangs, horns and an attitude to match - and my best resource and ally is leaving the company in a few weeks. The last person from when I was hired who knew anything about the job I signed on for - gone. Stressed out don’t describe it.
So I’m a little scare. Still here. Still doing my best.
