Well. So last Thursday was interesting to say the least!
About 10 days ago, I went to the #opthamologist to continue on my “make sure all my other organs, orrifices and body parts are in tip-top shape” world tour…
What a mistake. Sort of. Well not really. I was referred to #Ocularplastics. Having had no clue as to why I was going, I went to the appointment Thursday, hence my “bubble” status. .
After 3, count them, 3 hours, Dr. Audrey Ko diagnosed me with “history of bilateral #Proptosis with suspicion for #Graves/Thyroid Eye Disease”… #SoManyTests
She’s rather convinced and sees me with all the classic signs… Oh yeah. Because Amy needed YET another effing #AILMENT!!!!
So here we go again with extensive blood labs, CT Orbits, Visual Fields, Ocular Color Photo, and then back to #ShileyEyeCenter to discuss the treatment plan.
All I know is, my eyes hurt all time, headaches, sinus, occasional double vision, 👀 protruding eyes 👀… And more.
So yeah. I’m in my bubble. And I’m just going about my bubble mess….
So I decided to emerge from my self-imposed “woe is me” avoidance bubble long enough my work on the #ranch.
Re-did the walk-in, gave Little Ricky a #puppy cut, made a pot of #Spanish #Lentil and Black Bean #Soup, and more.
I took photos of the walk-in after my #darkandtwisty #OCD hands got in there. Now it’s #justlikeilikeit!!
My mom is kind of an #apocalypsejunkie! #HoardingMuch? I tried the best I could in there…
On Saturday, I emerged again and dragged myself out to the Campo #VMX Flat Track Races. Rather fascinating experience. I very much enjoyed it when Jeff, my long ago ex-fiancée, took me to #TheMurph to the #Motocross… So. Much. FUN!!! Wish it were more like that. Sadly, it felt like we watched more #tractor races (i.e. wetting down the track, filling holes, etc, etc…) than actually watching races. $10 sort of wasted. But at least I had a great experience.
So now we are at Sunday. I’m climbing out of my bubble now to start a week anew.
Tomorrow, Monday, I’m headed to my therapist do discuss last weekend homework assignment. We are working on unsensored future plans. Is #sex and a hot man considered #Unsensored #futureplans? #cobwebs
I kid, I kid! Or am I???
A lot of new testing, exams, scans, to go through, but at least the sinus pain (or what I thought was #sinus pain), eye strain, painful eyes, double vision, protruding eyes, headaches, etc., will be taken care of.
This all culminates on Thursday, when I will have my sit down with my Ocularplastics and figure out a treatment plan.
I also am am meeting with my #LiverTransplant Doctor, Dr. Vodkin, and my Coordinator, Joanie, on Thursday. Just a regular check up and discussion of the latest shit in my life.
And God willing, I can fit in my work and a few meals with friends.
For this, I’m #blessed.
Hope everyone has a great week. I’ll try to blog more as I get back to the city this week.
Ti amo tutti molto,
