Life is very challenging at present for me. On Wednesday I had my second cataract operation. That was worse than the 1st one, 6 weeks earlier. For two weeks I must not bend my head, body, lift or exercise. For 4 weeks I must not even cook. With these restrictions and coping with FM at the same time is not easy. Evrerything seems to go on the floor and although I’ve two grab sticks It is not easy to pick them up without bending your head. Then on top of these difficulties I have to put antibiotic eye drops in the eye every 4 hours, which is difficult when you have not glasses on to see what you are doing. On Wednesday the surgeon squirted liquid in the eye and of course I had to blink. The surgeon shouted at me and told me not to blink. A little while later he shouted at me again and told me to breathe! Since Wednesday the pain and fatigue with FM and arthritis has at times been unbearable. Thankfully the worse is over. On the 15th December I go back to the opticians and I cannot wait to get new glasses. I apologise for any errors in this but my glasses are just not right for me and therefore I am having difficulty with seeing what I have written. Does anyone have suggestions how to get through this period?
