I met with the eye surgeon today. He checked my eyes, agreed with the optometrist, and told me I must have injections in my eyes. I told him I found the idea horrifying. He seemed to understand that.

If I don’t do it I could go blind.

I am feeling traumatized. Honestly, I am inclined to feel traumatized by any medical treatment. But sticking a needle in my eye seems especially likely to induce trauma. The idea of it is enough to induce trauma.

So I didn’t fit in any exercise today. I worked diligently if dismally and ate frozen pizza and salad for dinner. I did the housework on my checklists and got in some knitting. I have felt alarmed all day, though.

If I did not have so many deadlines I would take a mental health day.
