As if I didn't have enough health issues, now I have one that really frightens me. The one sense I don't think I can cope without is sight. I have bad eyesight and astigmatism, and that isn't a big deal. But lately my eyes don't always focus after I blink. The world is fine one second and the next? I blink and everything is blurry. Sometimes it goes away in a few minutes, sometimes it lasts for hours. The first time or two I thought it was dehydration but that doesn't seem to be the cause. The doctor's reaction? "Huh. That's weird." So now I have another issue that I need a referral to yet another specialist over. I cannot make it happen so the doctor can see it. I can't predict it, or how long it will last. I have almost quit driving unless the kids absolutely must go somewhere or be picked up while husband is teaching. He is out of town three days a week teaching, and while he can take the university bus quite easily, it usually means that I either have to pick him up or he has to walk home. While it is relatively safe, and it isn't super far, it is still a lot after a long day, Know what I mean?? I hate being afraid to drive, and I hate having to pull over and park and call husband or my parents or Wiz to come and get me if I am driving and get blurry. Eye drops for dry eyes and for allergy eyes don't help at all. They do sting like crazy though. I am using some of the gel eye drops at night in the hopes that if it is the eye getting too dry that this will help. I bought the kind that give you many individually packaged doses rather than a bottle, because I don't think I can handle an infection on top of this. Have any of you heard of anything like this? Any ideas/suggestions? You know it isn't good when you get a confused look from the doctor, Know what I mean?? It seems to be about the only reaction I get anymore, and it is exasperating. I have stopped driving every time I was out and this happened, and I have refused to go to things or called to get help getting thank you home from something. It isn't easy to ask, but we cannot afford for me to wreck the car and even more I couldn't live with myself if I hurt someone, esp one of my kids who was in the car with me. It is tempting to try to push through and drive with the blurriness, but I am just too scared I will hurt someone. I hate feeling like my body is betraying me one more time. It hoovers.
