Thursday as I was pulling into my parking lot in my building, all of a sudden out the blue, in my right eye I saw a cloudy vision of what looked like eye lashes in my eye. Whenever I would turn my eye from right to left, I could see “something”… my heart started beating so fast. I was able to see out of the eye, but I could see a thin coat of “hair” which looked to be red, and “swishy”. I jumped out of the car walking to my apartment so fast. First thing I did was pull my lashes off. After doing that, as I was looking in the mirror… I saw 2 small blood clots in my eye. Anxiety kicked in and I was going crazy in my mind. I was so nervous. I didn’t know what was going on. I must have walked my hallway in my apartment 40 times, praying. I wanted to go through emergency, but I had to see if it would “go away” the next day.
After calming down, and realizing that it wasn’t going away, I went to bed and never got any sleep constantly wondering what was happening. The next day came, and it was worst. I went to the mirror and noticed that those 2 dots on the white part of my eye had connected and joined together and now the blood clot is around the black part of my eye. When I put my hand over my left eye, I can see out of the right, but not good. I was miserable and went to emergency that night. My daughter went with me but she kept telling me that this was something that I had to wait out. She knew what I was going through, but I needed to talk to a doctor. After being checked the doctor, doing several test, she said that my eye was normal and that it was something that I had to wait out. This takes about 7 days. Oh boy……….
Here it is Monday, and I’m so glad that its going away. The clots on the white part of my eye balls are gone, but not the eye ball. The point.. in sharing my story is… You see things totally different when your eye/body is going through something. I really realize that its so important to Thank God for your life. As I sat in peace and quiet talking to God… I thought about how my left eye totally took charge and helped the right eye out. When my eye was “shishing” back and forth like hair was taking over my vision, my left eye had its back. The bible says that two are better than one. When one goes out, whether its your feet, leg, arm, ears, the other will pick the slack.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12New International Version (NIV)
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
Thank you Lord for being with me during that time. I was NOT doing well. God has your back even when you have no idea what’s going on. Be Blessed!
