Seen three consultants at hospital today, not good news appears the problems with my eyesight might be permanent, got to wait MRI scan in 2 months but they don't hold out any hope, seems that the nerves behind my eyes are not the colour they should be and that my eyes do shake from side to side.
On the plus side at least I know that's how it is.

Cancelled my fourth counselling session tomorrow as I'm not unto talking at the moment.

    I know you don't feel like talking at the moment @woodbine but that can be a sign that you really should go to the counselling session, it must be a lot for you to process right now. I'm so sorry the consultants didn't give news and I hope that the MRI shows a different story.

    Did SM go to the appointments with you?

    yes she did as usual and  we were both disappointed but not totally surprised, it looks like my eyesight will never improve and might get worse but got to keep looking on the bright side, they don't think it likely the MRI will show anything new as I had a scan in March, at the end of the day its a mixture of the strokes/seizures and medication that have done the damage and may/will continue to do more damage.

    Has the hospital offered much emotional or practical support @woodbine? Such as accessibility ideas and things to help you adjust to the change in your eyesight?

    Not yet Adrian but hopefully they will complete the paper-work so I can register as partially sited on my next visit after my scan.

    I'm really sorry to hear that @woodbine it's really sad to hear that something like that is untraceable.
