They have a soap opera on in the waiting room. How do people watch this drivel? It's all negativity and deception. Can't they fkn put on a comedy channel or just music ffs? I might be a teensy bit stressed.
And the doctor says see you again in three weeks. He didn't seem discouraged, although why would he be, his eyes work. He said my vision may take weeks or months to come back, if it comes back at all. He showed me the photos again of my retina, which does look way better. He seems inordinately proud of that. Great, but I don't care how sexy my fkn retina is, I want to be able to SEE!!!
I made my follow-up appointment with one of his partners who has a better bedside manner. Plus, I'd like another professional opinion. She did my original retinal tear repair surgery four years ago and knows her shit, even if she stopped performing surgeries.
I'm allowed to go back to full physical activity, so that's a bonus. Except I have no depth perception and already have dark bruises on me from bumping into machines and weights at the gym the other day.
Looking on the bright side, I haven't cried or puked yet. Yay! It's the little things. ;)
