Hi Cece, about your vision, well I can only describe the opposite from the effects of optic neuritis so many times. For the most part I think my vision is fine, but sometimes, like after a hot shower, I can definitely notice the "dullness" of the reds especially, and even the blues and other colors don't have that richness. It seems to come back once I've cooled off. I don't see why getting your blood flowing wouldn't cause the opposite - you probably had just adjusted to what you were seeing.
yes - like that - I've had that too, back when I was 22 and had my optic neuritis first incident. I could close one eye and see red one shade, then close the other eye and it was a duller shade. Disturbing, but then it recovered. With this, it's the whole spectrum, it's nothing I've ever experienced before.
Unnaturally yellow flowers at the airport. My son's dull blue hat that I used to consider gray. The large picture on our wall of the Minneapolis skyline, with vibrant blues in the lake and the sky, who knew. The purple of my hairspray. The hunter-bright orange of my kids school card, that I use everyday. Everyone else not giving any of these objects a second thought.
Rest up, drink your water, take care of yourself, and enjoy the ride! And your egg cream! As a native New Yorker (no longer there though), I sure loved some chocolate egg creams as a kid!!
when tzootsi mentioned it a few pages back I thought it might be a truffle, not a drink, now I am looking forward to trying one.
p.s. are you still accepting things to send to Dr. S?
Yes - send a picture and a line or two of what you want to say to firstname.lastname@example.org
! This will be sent as an addendum. You have plenty of time to get this in, I am a bit preoccupied at the moment.
