I notice that I'm much less tired since I'm wearing my glasses. Now, either that is because I'm exhausting my eyes less, or it is all just a great big coincidence. I am more bright eyed and bushy tailed, to the point that other people notice it also. My eyes aren't so heavy anymore and seem to be open wider. Maybe it is all my imagination and I am fooling myself into believing this, but whatever the cause, the effect is pleasant. I am getting a better look at the world, so I can't wait for Wednesday next week when I get my new glasses. There ought to be quite an improvement.
I made an appointment with the ophthalmologist for January the 17th. Well, actually, I'm going to the clinic inside the hospital, so I don't know yet who I'll get to see, but I'm sure that will be fine. Did you know that they have a machine that can read your glasses and see which strength they are exactly? I'll bring both my old glasses and my new ones in case they want to see the difference.
I'm just thrilled to bits to have my eyes sorted out if they are causing me some of my problems with fatigue. I also can't wait to put on the new glasses because of the new model frames. I think they are a better shape than what I have now and that they will fit my current face better, the slimmed down face. My face was fatter when I had these glasses fitted.
At any rate, I'm not sleeping during the day anymore and this is in spite of the fact that I drink more decaf now than regular coffee. I've cut way back on that. I thought I would be sleepy during the day, but I'm not now. I don't feel called by the sofa anymore to come and lie down on it and have a nap. It has stopped being alluring. I was having my quick fixes with caffeine, but not anymore. I start the morning with it, but then switch to decaf and stick to that pretty much all day long.
I sleep better at night too and very rarely get up so early anymore. I really do have to set the alarm clock now when I have to go someplace. I can't depend on the Überhund to wake me up, he sleeps in just as late as I do.
I had ergo therapy this morning. Luckily the most irritating and obnoxious person wasn't there and that is always a relief. We have a better morning then. It's awful to say it, but it is the truth. I don't think she'll last long in the group, because more often than not she is not there. Maybe she needs all the help she can get, but not at my cost.
We had to start making a present for ourselves, so I am making a three dimensional heart that I am going to festively decorate. It already says 'Hurray' on it. I have to find or make flowers and ribbons and all sorts of stuff.
This is just going to be a short post, because I don't have that much to report and I want to get into my flannel pajamas and get cozy and watch some TV. The heater is on and it should be just right. All that's missing is a package of cookies. Oh well...
Have a great night, everyone.
