i wish i could tell ya lasik provided me with the gift of seeing the world differently. i was hoping i'd come out of surgery with some metaphoric--made real improvement...i'd see thru the bad people, recognize the good...you get my drift.
none of that happened.
the only thing i can say about now seeing without contacts or glasses is i'm tired. really tired. i frequently have nightmares involving waking up and not being able to see.
sometimes i have to slowly open my eyes...one at a time....because i'm scared my nightmares will come true. i also feel really weird going to bed each night because my routine has changed. there's no more taking out the contacts, storing the contacts, feeling my way to my glasses, etc. i'm not complaining. TRUST ME! it's just weird...
i'm realizing glasses and blindness were kind of what i identified with...i was always the girl with glasses. i did that for so long that it's hard to forget now.
i realize it's only been a couple of weeks.
i'm still glad i did it, but i will admit i'm confused. i think i miss not seeing sometimes...just because it's how it always was.
i know...i ate bonkers for breakfast this morning.
