going blind. and mad as hell!! **UPDATE**

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

For the past couple of weeks i have been losing my vision. It just comes andgoes. One second everything will be fine, the next i go completely blind. So i finally am able to go to the eye dr bc my income tax came back. I asked my mother to drive me and watch the kids during the exam. Its probably not best that i drive. She whines and complains that she doesnt want to, she lives 2 miles from me. So i asked her to come over and watch them, she doesnt want to. Well my DH came home early from work, asked him to either come or watch the kids, doesnt want to. I feel like i do fucking everything and when i really need the help no one gives a shit. Im so mad. My vision is important, its not like i have a toothache. I cant fucking SEE. After crying on the phone my mother finally agreed to come sit with them, but that i cant take to long. Im in tears bc im so frustrated.

*update* my DH finally agreed to go, after lots of eye rolling. So i called my mother and told her. She screamed at me for "thinking only of myself" and when i started crying she hung up on me. I admit that i tend to be a floormat and i shy away from confrontation. I know im meek and im working on it. Ive just had it! This is serious and i feel like they dont give a rats ass that im afraid. 

**UPDATE**I Just left the eye dr. Im now waiting on the neurolgist. I have been having mini strokes, that is what was causing the blindness. Im confused bc i am only 25, in good health, i do occasionally smoke, but other than that im healthy!! IDK. Im just so scared.

No, everyone else is at work and i dont want to bother them. I live in an area where there are very few cabs. How would i put two carseats and me in the back? Ive never been in a cab, only seen them on tv

Leave the kids with your dh anyways. It's his responsibility as well to care for them.

Good luck with your appointment.

Sorry sweetie. I hope everything gets better! Explain to them they are being ridiculous. What would happen if you actually need them if you are going blind

Blood pressure or untreated diabetes can do that to you also. It's how my SO found out he was diabetic.
Keep us posted mama and good luck.

It's just that was happeneing to me for a while.  I would be doing just normal stuff, cleaning, watching RV looking out a window whatever then my vison would blank out for no reason.  Went to the doctor and it turns out that I have really low blood pressure.  (We later discovered it's because I have an extra artery).  I'm geberally in great health.  I'm not super skinny, or chubby.  Just your average person.  

To keep it under control I drink lots of water all the time.  I also don't drive as sometimes I randomly black out still.

I dont think so? Ive never had BP issues before, im really healthy too. I exercise, eat right, not overweight..not skinny either. Good question though.


Quoting Kleotide:

((Hugs))  I'm sorry that you are having so muc trouble!  Could it be your blood pressure?

yeah..... most of the time. But where im from, all the men are. Its a cultural thing for them to not take care of the kids, other than provide a paycheck.
