Eye Surgery

When I moved from Georgia to Kansas the help I could get changed. I have sliding scale dental and vision now. The eye check up for new glasses changed things. I needed to see a specialist. The fluid between my corena and iris should be able to move to the inside of my eye. My eyes don't have just just small tunnels but the specialist cant even see the opening. It's totally closed. The iris has grown so much it covers theopenings. I have lazer eye surgery tomorrow on my right eye and next week  the left. They will  make a hole in each of my irises. Not gonna lie, Im not thrilled. My eyes and the color of my irsis are amazing. Now I will have a hole in each eye. But at least the sharp eye pain should go away. Also I thank God I got the money for surgery.

Believe or disbelieve?

It's dangerous when your doctor doesn't believe you.
It's difficult when friends don't believe you.
It really sucks when family doesn't believe.

I hate that I often can't see. It's like someone smeared Vaseline over them.

The nerve endings feel raw and damaged.  
And it's not fun.
No, it can't be shingles, I've never had chicken pox.
Before today Mom hadn't seen anything wrong with my back, but today she was putting cream on my back and said, "It just looks like mumps".  
Me:  O.O Mumps?!
Well, when I was a kid the doctor said I had the strain of mumps that would stay in my body forever and flare up any time  and mom said mumps can happen anywhere so yea *sarcasm* *insert unhappy face here*

After the creepy-crawlies feeling(feeling spiders or bugs where there is nothing), the actual ant bites (stepped into ants getting out of the car in town and had bites before I could get out of them) and wanting to claw my foot off (dang those bites hurt!), my back started burning last night. It felt like I was being whipped. But mom didn't see anything. Hello fibro nerves flare. I would rather have the creepy-crawlies nerve flare. =P

I woke up during the night doing the back stretches I do when my back hurts. Yeah, it's gonna be that kind of day.
