My good friend was rushed into hospital on Thursday with a searing headache and couldn't see properly.
This came on over the course of just a few days.
She has acute glaucoma and has lost most of the sight in one eye and has only partial sight in the other. The doctors hope she'll regain some more sight in one eye.
She's only 51!
'Well, I've just got to get on with it' was all she said to me when I picked her up from the hospital.
And there's me with my health anxiety quivering with fear over a twitch in my little finger or pain in my leg!
It puts things in perspective.
