I am 5 and 1/2 months post LASIK ... some days I think I am on the mend. The onion goggles seem to help, but not all the time. Just about every day, I am in pain ... either physically (burning) or emotitionaly. Like a roller coaster.
I took two days off of work this week and took my two kids (8 and 10) to Mystic aquarium in CT. We stayed at a hotel and the kids got to have fun, go swimming, etc. Overall I did fairly well.
Not sure why, but when we got home I just felt sick to my stomach. I often feel like this when I get home from going somewhere. I see how happy my kids are as well as my wife as they run around the house whistling and humming. I used to do that!
My wife said the car ride must have done it. I don't bother explaining what the real problem is, because if your not going through this ... I don't think it really can be explained.
I am barely into this ... so many folks on this site are either worse off or have been dealing with this for such a long time and I really stumble with how to keep doing it. I feel like a baby sometimes ...
I do have a coupe reasons to keep fighting ... my wife and kids. My daughter sung at her schools variety show last week and she dedicated the song to me. She keeps me going.
Althought the song makes me cry every time I watch it, it also gives me a little lift. I am not sure if this is appropriate or not, but this is what lifts me and keeps me going:
I am seeking professional help for depression and I am taking some meds as well which I hope to get off soon.
Well ... this is certainly not the Friday night I am used too (reading posts, stories, etc ... in my kitchen, wearing onion goggles).
I am looking forward to a better tomorrow and good overall weekend.
