I miss driving too.
Follow-up with my optometrist on Tuesday. Eager. But what if he doesn’t think that my vision has improved enough to drive? I know it is getting better but also know that I read for shit with my left eye alone. My overall left field of vision remains in general dimmer than the right, but I can make out a lot of details and peripheral vision is back online
A month of not driving has been hard. A month of fretting about my vision overall has been stressful. One of my best stress relievers is my yoga mat, but I am really limitied in the poses that I can do without risk of increasing my ocular pressure which can interfere with the healing in optic neuritis.
I know I still have a charmed life. I have no idea the suffering others endure. And someday, no matter what, I won’t be driving. But right now, having a bit of a pity party, even though I know I shouldn’t. The heart does what it wants, right? Despite what hte brain tells it.
Namaste and Blessings, T.
