Had my first of many eye appointments earlier this morning. Dilation drops still haven’t worn off, so here’s hoping I don’t have too many typos. (If you can’t type with your eyes closed, can you even type, bro?)
Called in a favor with my wife and she gave me a ride there. Well, not really “called in’ - she didn’t owe me a favor. I simply don’t ask for favors much? I’m low maintenance. : ) Food, water, sunlight, a bit of conversation, and I’m good.
As for a diagnosis, well. My eyes are shit. NO corneal ulcer this time. What did the two docs talk about? Something about blood vessels growing over my cornea?
(When I got diagnosed with a corneal corneal ulcer, it was such a great example that the doc asked if one of the docs-in-training could have a look. Doesn’t bother me at all. You learn nothing if you only see healthy eyes. SEE THIS, BUDDING DOC? THAT’S A BAD EYE.
Anyway. I figured going in today that I would be prescribed some concert of antibacterial and steroid drops. As a bonus, I also got prescribed an antibiotic pill. Huh.
My SIL picked me up. While wife and I are separated (not legally, but she left May 2020), well. If we did actually divorce, is the term ex-S(IL a thing? Just sounds so awkward. Ha ha. I hadn’t seen her in over a year. I never, ever got a sense that she had anything against me. But, with a void of direct communication, you only really know when you’re in a car with someone.
Yeah, she’s still very chill with me. She’s far more rational than her mother. Ha. Both siblings express how overbearing MIL is. (So, regarding any past rants, hey, IT’S NOT JUST MY PERSPECTIVE.0 I was all worried she’d ask me about how I’m doing. Oh, she did once, in passing. But otherwise, she babbled like someone who hadn’t talked to a neutral adult in a while. How her kids are bombing/bombed (home)schooling. How her marriage is. How Tashy is doing. How small child is.
It’s a simple comfort to know that someone doesn’t hate you. Oh, I never truly worried that SIL thought ill of me. But on a long enough timeline, you’re going to wonder “Is she still as friendly with me?”
Even my own sister, I do wonder whether I’m still in her good graces, despite no evidence contrary.
What was my point? Eh, like I always try to have one. I may claim to have no “friends” in this backwards suburb. But, at least I know I’m not completely alone.
PS: SIL randomly cited two examples of small child being abusive towards animals. I noticed years ago that she wasn’t treating my girls right. My docile felines would only scratch if provoked. Though, never had an explanation for why both of them immediately hissed at her upon meeting her. Complete with swatting. Might be her age? Kira and T’Pol behave like that towards adults.
In other words, I really hate being right.
