My eye operation went well: I am neither blind nor dead. My left eye is still a little blurry, but it's getting better and I'm back to reading with both eyes open. I didn't expect the general anaesthetic to have the effects it did...
My side-effects included headaches, a sore throat that has finally subsided and an overbearing exhaustion that reminded me of having the flu or the worst periods of my depression. I've spent over a week on the couch and for the first 4 days, I was too tired to read or even watch much TV. After that, I was more motivated to do stuff, but too tired to do much at all. I was bored and more frustrated than usual!
But now I'm alert enough to blog, read and join the world again, I think my enforced downtime was exactly what I needed to recharge. Yes, I hated being so unproductive, but it made me think about how much I love writing and what I plan to do over the summer. I'm kind of excited to resume writing.
I've still got to take it easy, since I'm not back to 100% yet, but I never thought that feeling like crap for a week could make me more dedicated to my writing career!
