So, after a good 3 or so years of saving money, it's finally starting to happen- The preparations for my ICL eye surgery!

It's pretty crazy- like, when I went in to see if I was eligible for iLasik, I went in expecting them to tell me that I wasn't able to get it, and that I'd have to just keep hunting around for frames that fitted me. I accepted that back then, then I was told I could get not only iLasik, but Implantable Collamer lens surgery, where they inject a permanent contact lens straight in front of your normal one. 

Holy crap.

So tonight at 6pm, I'm going to go in and get measured up for a lens, in which it'll be a 14 week wait as they get hand made in Switzerland by a company called Visian ICL, and after that, my surgeon has done the most ICL surgeries in Australasia apparently, and will probably do both of my eyes over the course of a day. I'll probably need a day or two off work so I can get use to my eyesight, but I have a very good chance of not needing glasses after my surgery.

I am VERY nervous right now- I'm 9 hours before my appointment and are very nervous, but it's a thing and it's here right now! OMFG am I going to have vision like normal people do in 3 months time? What does the world really look like? I am both excited and terrified at the same time TBH. 

So... yeah TuT Exciting stuff is coming! :squee:

Thank you ^^ I will at some point soon. I'm just taking a small break from Green Lantern for now after hearing that DC have axed 3 of the GL titles T.T I'm waiting to see if they're gone for good, or if DC reboot them in new titles. They're doing the Convergence crisis so they might chuck Kyle and Carol in a 90s universe, or something. I don't know. I'm using it as a break from all the constant crisis's they've been having. I've needed it for some time T.T

Hey there, hon! :love: Recovered from the Overloads? Man- I was exhausted after I made my rounds *o* The last table was just about to leave when I finally got to it D: It's tough being a punter! XD

Mostly recovered. Just have a couple of things to do in the aftermath, balance the books etc...? Good to know you made it all the way around, I noticed it took you about an hour to get down one isle, mission accomplished! Will you be returning next year as a stall holder?

OMG 1 HOUR?! *dies then cries or something* Holy crap, I knew I was slow but that's really something XD 

I honestly don't know how to answer that one hon. I've unfortunately given myself a fear of sorts with all the effort I've put into conventions in the past or something, where if I even think about a time constrained thing, my body starts shuddering till I tell myself that I don't need to do it. IT's a thing that IS getting better, but I don't know if it's because I'm not going to conventions that it knows it doesn't have to fight so hard, or if my adrenal glands are repairing themselves. I am fighting though to get a better handle on it. This Wednesday will be week 3 of me going back to the gym for the first time in YEARS. MY personal trainer has given me a work out that is about 10 minutes long and has pathetic difficulty, and the main goal for me right now is moving my body. That's it. My first time back I did 3 exercises and was in pain for a week. Last week I did about 6, and was in pain for 2 days. I'm hoping that this Wednesday I can do a full workout and start getting my strength back. The stronger and healthier I am, the better I sleep, I feel and the better I can deal with my auto immune issues. My goals with my gym plan right now have very low expectations cause frankly, what I'm doing right now amazes me. I honestly thought I'd be incapable of ANY exersize, but I've managed to wait till my body was just capable apparently :) I can only walk- not power walk, my push ups are all half body standing ones, my squats are pretty pathetic, and I'm on entry leveled core strengthening exersizes, but every time I go to the gym, I come back feeling more certain that I can do it, and feeling stronger after I recover. All I have to do is not over do it. 

So.... maybe? I've told myself I'd take a year off, but lets be realistic- if I'm still like this next year then I'm going to take another year off cause I am NO GOOD to anyone being a freaked out mess behind the table. Even if I get a stand in to sell for me, and wander the con all day. I'll be going at a punter at minimum :D And hey- I'll be running Drawfest stall all 3 days for Armageddon, so I'm not gone. I'm just not selling MY art. For me, the is a huge stress off my mind :) Running the stall I can do easy enough. Coming up with art to sell after having several years of forcing art out of myself for upcoming conventions when I was obviously too stressed? Nope. My body deserves this break ;) 

It's great to see you back at the con this year though- I saw a colour cover on your table too! <3 Sales a bit better this time around for you? Sorry I couldn't stick around longer than I did. I really love that the con has gotten bigger but MAN- I can't get around the whole con in 1 hour anymore like I use to XD IT was pretty much 6pm by the time I got to the last table XD
