Anxiety, Insomnia, and Two Days to Gamma Knife!

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:53pm
So I only have two days to my Gamma Knife procedure and I think the waiting has really gotten to me. I have been an emotional wreck the past couple of days, crying over every little thing- and it has nothing to do with what time of month it is. I am still not sleeping, I didn't get to sleep until around 5am and slept until noon. Normally not a problem but I have to be at the hospital on Thursday at 7am so I need to get to sleep before 5am! I just had a million thoughts running thru my head last night and no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't shut them off! I think part of my problem is that I have been feeling like I might be coming down with a cold so I have been a little nervous. I don't want anything to keep me from being able to have the procedure. I spoke to the nurse today and he said that even if I had a cold they could and WOULD still do the procedure so now I don't have to worry about it. I hope knowing that will help me sleep tonight because I am exhausted! I exercised today, rode the bike for 15 mins and went for a walk to the library to help, plus I need to get out more!

A friend called yesterday and invited me to see a movie. It was a nice surprise. We saw "Enchanted" it was very entertaining. I enjoyed it.

My vision has been giving me a little anxiety. It seems to be getting worse.
Sometimes I see just fine and other times things are blurry or double. I think light may be an issue- driving at night is kinda scary. I made an appointment with my eye doc for Tuesday. After my first two surgeries my vision was bad right after the surgery and got better with time and this time seems to be the opposite so I want to get it checked before it gets worse. May be nothing but its better to be safe.
