Still working from home today. Over the weekend I went out a few times for some shopping and every trip was followed by a headache and the need to cover my eye for the rest of the day to rest it. I guess I'm just too impatient for it to feel better, and progress seems to have slowed down on that.
The eye itself doesn't hurt a lot - it feels like it did years ago when I wore contact lenses and occasionally fell asleep still wearing them - uncomfortable but not terrible, except of course that back then I could instantly fix it by taking the lenses out. The eye socket though seems to be quite prone to being uncomfortable / painful and the headaches are a drag. Of course I realise its only two weeks ago tomorrow that I had the operation, and despite my frustration that really isn't long to recover from an operation.
My appetite is absolutely back and I've overeaten quite a lot over the last few days, probably compensation for the days when I didn't want to eat at all. I've also eaten all the wrong things despite my plans to be all nourishing and healthy for optimal healing - including giving in to absolute cravings for Krispy Kreme doughnuts and non-gf bread :-( I've eaten buttered toast for the first time in ages this week - and loved it! Of course it doesn't come without consequences just because I'm comfort eating with (some) justification... but that's enough information I'm pretty sure ;-) I will get back on the gf and healthy eating wagons as soon as I stop feeling quite so sorry for myself - I'm kind of looking forward to it now!
Anyway, I'm going to try to go into work tomorrow. I'll be taking the train and that in itself will be more outdoors time than I've had in 2 weeks apart from my follow up appointment on Thursday. Please keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't arrive in work only to develop a staggering headache and have to crawl back home again, whether I make my first attempt tomorrow or later in the week!
