Not Enough Warnings

You'd think with a whole folder of information about my surgery last week, I would have been prepared. There's never enough warnings. So here's a couple of things I've learned:
1. Eye surgery makes your eye hurt. Ok, that was probably mentioned somewhere. It's fairly obvious. But you need your eyes for, oh, everything. Point being, I'd like to get to the part of the recovery process where I could at least somewhat enjoy watching TV, reading magazines, and just about everything else in life but I can't because my eye is sensitive to light. Oh yeah, obviously this means I'm not really back to blogging/commenting yet. I'm sure you're heartbroken.
2. I have odd reactions to pain pills. Besides sleeping 20 hours a days (might as well since I CANT DO ANYTHING), I'm oddly emotional and sensitive about weird things. Seriously. I burst into tears 10 times a day. Friday night I spent hours convinced the dog was mad at me. Yep. Why am I admitting this? I'm stopping now.
3. There was more, but it's been 5 minutes and my eye hurts and I'm tired again. Peace out.

So sorry! I hope you feel better!! I have a weird reaction to pain meds generally I sleep 24/7 but sometimes I am lucky enough to have hives to go along with the sleep. So I itch and sleep, itch and sleep. Anyway, I hope you feel better!!

You poor thing -- this is terrible. If you can't open your eye wth is there to do but hop up on meds and wait for it to be over? Okay there I go summarizing what you already said. That was useful...not.

Is there anything I can do?? For real--let me know.

At least with your eyes closed you can cuddle with your sweet puppy and enjoy some music? Or smell some scented candles and eat some icecream?
