Almost a week ago, I lost the peripheral vision in my left eye. The day started out as any other day would - exciting, as I was tying up loose ends for a Shot Show event and upcoming week of filming. However, things took a turn for the worse when I started seeing some weird flashes of light in my left eye. All of a sudden, it looked like a grey marble had appeared in my vision, except there was no marble and it was actually happening inside my eye. I called my eye specialist's office within 15 minutes of experiencing symptoms and they told me to come in for a rush visit. I'm so glad I did because it turns out my retina had become detached. This is a very serious issue that can cause permanent blindness, so I'm incredibly lucky that the specialist was able to see me so quickly. At first, I was really upset that I wouldn't be able to go to Shot Show because I had been looking forward to seeing so many friends there. But then I realized how serious my condition was and I was just grateful that I was getting the treatment I needed. I had an emergency procedure done while awake in the ophthalmologist's office within the hour. No time to research. I knew I had the best doctor in the area, so I had to go with it. I had vitrectomy surgery. Small microsurgical instruments were introduced into my eye to remove the vitreous gel of the eye. Fluid that leaked underneath my retina was removed and cryopexy was applied to the retina to seal the retinal tear. Basically, my eye was frozen to form scar tissue around a retinal tear, which acts like glue. Then, a gas bubble was placed to fill the inside of my eye and block fluid from entering the tear. Guys, I had needles shoved in my eye while awake! The first few shots numbed my eye. I had surgery on the white part of my eye, so once it heals, it should look normal again. Immediately after the surgery, the white part of my eye was bloodshot like I'd never seen before. My eye was pretty swollen and the pressure in my eye was 60 at one point. I had to keep my head tilted to the right at all times for several days. Yesterday was the first day I could position my head upright, but I was extremely dizzy most of the day because I was so used to having my head tilted. The gas bubble that's repairing my eye is also a danger if I'm not extra careful. I've been very uncomfortable trying to sleep at night because I typically sleep all over the place, including on my stomach. I have to keep pillows under my back so I don't accidentally flip over and cause the gas bubble in my eye to block my line of vision, which would be really bad and basically make me blind if I lay on my back right now. The bubble will dissolve within another week or so or could last for for a few weeks - everyone’s body processes this differently. Some bubbles last up to 8 weeks. 🫧👁️‍🗨️ I had many gas bubbles in my eye at first but they all come together to form one big bubble during head positioning (the right sided head tilt thing, that’s why you have to keep your head tilted). I'm glad my retina didn't detach in the air or in Vegas, because if it had, I would have lost the vision in my left eye completely. My doctor told me that if it hadn't been treated right away, I would have had much bigger issues and would more than likely experience complete blindness in my left eye. I still have the bubble in my eye, but as of right now, my vision is the same as it was before the tear, which is great news. My pressure was also stabilized quickly during the procedure. The bubble in my eye is pretty annoying, and laying on my side to sleep sucks, but as of right now, I'm fortunate. I have to be a couch potato for another week, but then I can start walking for exercise again (gently). Within a few weeks, I'll be able to hit the gym (and a much-needed spa day)! If you notice any of these symptoms seek help immediately: Blurred vision, inability to see in dim light, partial loss of vision, seein --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:

Special Mini-Episode. As a mother, caregiver, and someone who just likes helping others, I'm used to putting other people's needs before my own. I began to feel burnout and my health suffered as a result. When I was stressed, I would either eat more or sleep in more. I felt my energy being drained because I spent all of my time and energy on other people. I didn't realize that by giving others 100% of my attention, I was doing them a disservice by not taking care of myself. One day this past summer, as I was lying in bed, I had a life-changing thought: "There has to be more to life than feeling drained and defeated all the time." I was so exhausted, both physically and emotionally. I can't say for sure what led to that thought, but it could be years of unhealed trauma from Ken's deployment, being his caregiver at an early age, the loss of our friends in war, the death of my mother to cancer, my father's untimely and unexpected death, and the realization of other peoples' less-than-good intentions with my heart and time that came to light. The thought of there being more to life than just pain and suffering has always been what motivated me to get up and start making changes in my life and this time was no different. In October, I decided to take action and began making changes in my life that I felt would help me feel better. I changed my diet, started exercising more, and drinking more water. I even had weight-loss surgery in November! Additionally, I started doing guided meditations and playing my Oculus again - something that I really enjoy. These changes have helped me immensely and I finally feel like I'm living again instead of just existing to help everyone else. I've finally come to truly understand that taking care of myself should always be a priority. In the past, I would pour everything I had into others without taking the time to assess my own life and needs. I realized that I spent too much time trying to fix others and not enough time focusing on fixing myself. All my life, I was told that it was selfish to focus on myself and that people should be giving, but I now realize that this way of thinking is wrong. Top 10 Reasons To Put Yourself First You can’t pour from an empty cup. Taking time for yourself allows you to be more available for others. Investing in yourself develops self-confidence and builds self-esteem. Putting yourself first allows you to set boundaries and practice self-care. When you prioritize your own needs, you’re better able to focus on your goals. By looking after yourself, you’ll be in a better position to support others. You’ll have more energy to do the things you enjoy when you put yourself first. Taking time for yourself gives you the opportunity to reflect and learn from your experiences. Taking care of your own needs will help you to make healthier decisions for yourself. Prioritizing yourself helps you to appreciate and value yourself more. As the year comes to a close, it's the perfect time for some self-reflection. If you're feeling like your life is in shambles and you're constantly having to spread yourself thin for everyone else, it's time to make a change. It's okay to take a step back and assess what areas of your life are lacking so that you can start working on finding your happiness again. Trust me, I've been there before and I know how hard it can be. But it's so important to work on bettering yourself - even if it means making some tough changes in your life. --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
