If I were a car, I'd be a lemon

Started my new job and I LOVE it! Great people, good environment, phenomenal commute (15 - 20 minutes tops) and the work is interesting (Subaru). Monday evening (my second week on the job) I noticed my vision going to double at long distances. Great! Tuesday it was worse, although I still managed to get myself to and from work. SO scary BTW. Today I carpooled with Layne, my DH and will continue that until my vision returns.

Last week, when I started my right hand went weak and numb. That's better now, so I'm hoping the vision will be better in a week too. Since I work in automotive, I decided that if I were a car, I'd be a lemon. I'm basically a sweet little hotrod, but things just break down on me from time to time.

Happy Thought: I've got another treatment coming up, so that should help and I should have expected some setbacks with the stress of starting a new job. So maybe I'm a lemon with a really bright future. Yeah that's it. Look out world, this lemon is going places! (just very slowly - with a cane - so I don't fall. Double vision messes with your balance.)


  1. You are an inspiration to me Stacia! So up beat in your attitude! I'm praying your treatment will end the double vision!

  2. Keep it up! You are the sweetest lemon I know. :) Good luck with the new job!

  3. I remember feeling that way about my body in my 20's. I had 11 surgeries. The last one was one of my hardest to come through. I know in that difficult time though that prayer and faith carried me through a lot. You have a positive attitude and good perspectives on your shoulders. I pray you will have good results come of your next treatment. Hang in there, Stacia! ;)
