Yet more problems

When I was a little girl I used to struggle with bad thoughts brought about by insecurities, largely brought about by the influence of others.

Now those thoughts have come back through yet more health problems and my struggle to stay well. For a few days now I have had a problem with my eye so I made an appointment to see my doctor this morning. I cannot honestly believe I’m having to work through yet another problem.

It has now been confirmed that I have Blepharitis. The doctor thinks it is caused by a cyst on the eye-lid and not a sty. Having spoken to someone who has had the same condition, the diagnosis doesn’t seem to quite match my symptoms, but I hope my Doctor’s wrong about the cyst, because I don’t want yet more surgery.

Yet another emotional struggle. The positive side is that the infection from my other cyst has gone down so that’s a great help, although I know that in a couple of weeks I will need to have that one removed too. I may put the operation back so that I can deal with one problem at a time.

If I were to look at my problems cumulatively, I would feel so much worse. I know that I’m not alone when it comes to problems, but for now I need to work on taking away those bad thoughts.

I have lived with bad thoughts for many years now, I just don’t seem to be able to take those away.

  1. I am so so sorry you’re having these problems. I have you in my thoughts daily.

    I have been there with several things happening all at once and it made me feel very insecure. I’m hoping and praying that things take a big turn for the better for you soon.

    1. Thanks Bill. I totally understand you. Hope you’re doing okay now.

      I’m strong, but fed up and know it will pass. It’s just a matter of time. I need to ride with this. Thank you so much for posting.

  2. I’ve had my share of health problems. They always seem to last forever. “When it rains… it pours.”

    You will overcome them, you are a strong woman.
