    Default Feeling down.......I need a pick me up

    I figured you ladies and gents might help lift my spirits. I have not posted in a while but I usually lurk every few days. I have so many issues with my eyes mostly due to Sjogrens. On Monday I had punctual plugs inserted into my tear ducts to conserve what little moisture I have on my eyes.....the tear gland has been completely destroyed due to the Sjogrens. I woke this morning to my left eye being totally crusted shut.....I figured great an infection. So I called the Eye Doc to advise him of the current situation and was asked to come in. I am shocked and he said he never saw this coming. I have Narrow Angle Glaucoma so......2 more surgeries in November! These next to surgeries will be the 7th surgery since May! I really would like a break.....Sjogrens, Fibro, and now this! I guess what really ticks me off is that it's right in the middle of Craft Fair Season. So I guess I have toad crept that what I have made will have to do. Every time I have a surgery it sends my eyes into over drive and they get terribly inflamed! I am so sorry to be complaining because I know it could be a lot worse but Geez....a small break would be nice! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and I am sure tomorow this won't seem quite as bad. Thanks for listening 😢 I'd cry if I had some tears lol

    Ugh, my heart goes out to you Fannie. Of all my senses I think I'd be in a panic the most over problems with my eyes.

    I did get a giggle out of your auto-correct though - "toad crept" (which I'm sure was supposed to be "to accept") but the image of a toad creeping along in my mind was just too funny.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Oh Fannie...you can come here anytime to vent, cry, or just throw a fit. It does get old when you constantly have something going wrong with your health. Having issues with your eyes just sucks. It is bad enough to have other issues, but when you can't see, it takes it to a whole other level. Will keep you in my prayers.

    Fannie, Karen and are both had visions of the creeping toads.

    I have so much empathy for you - I got sick and tired of the glaucoma surgeries - and now the drops three times a day or be square, and the pills that are supposed to help . . . I couldn't afford for anything else to go wrong. Prayers coming - daily!!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I'm so sorry to hear about all of your troubles! I do hope things improve for you soon.

    I'm glad Karen explained the "toad crept" comment. I had no idea what that meant! I know you guys up in Maine have a different way of talking sometimes, but this was too much!
