I Am the Diva Challenge #313

It’s been a rough week and a half for me. I’m having some difficulty with my right eye and the  vitreous fluid is pulling away from the back of my eye.  It’s causing a lot of floaters and my vision has become hazy. I went back to the retina specialist today convinced that I had a detached retina. He assures me that it’s not detached or separated at all. And that the vitreous fluid will eventually  rectify itself. Until then I’m looking through haze with a big black floater in my eye.  The good news is that I’m not going blind. The bad news is that there’s nothing to do to fix it, except to wait. But my eye pressure is good, I don’t have macular degeneration, just old eyes. It’s hard for me to except because I don’t feel old and in my head I’m not.

Earth Day was this week so “I am the Diva Challenge” was to honor the earth. I chose to use the new tangle Icanthis because it looks like leaves or a plant. I wanted  an organic or natural looking tangle and because this is a new tangle I needed the practice.

    Beautiful Icanthis Laurie! I sympathize with you…. feeling NOT your actual age vs. what your body can actually do! And being an artist, vision is sooooooo important! I started having problems when current progressive lens technology could not meet my actual eye prescription needs! Sending healing energy your way! 🙂

    Nice idea to use ICanThis for this challenge. I guess a lot of us can relate the the distress of feeling young at heart with a body that no longer cooperates. Hoping your eye issues are resolved very soon.
