    I had my eye appt today for eye pressure check for glaucoma and the usual drill was how is ur eyes and any changes. I noticed some changes since last month. It really wasn't warrented recently because I thought I might be the psych meds because some psych meds are my eyes' nemesis. So pdoc and I toyed around that. The eye doc did some tests and suspect my retina maybe up to no good. So more tests were ordered. Then they sent me over to the retina specialist to MORE tests and it was determined that my retina have detached in my left eye. They said the treatment for that is surgery and I will have a long recovery period. Thanks mom for punishing me. I've been punished enough.

    Can the world stop spinning and let me off I can't take any more setbacks. If you don't hear from me tmw, it means I may be in the hospital for my own safety.
