My first ON started on Christmas day and in the process of the sight coming back I often felt disorientated and would cover my bad eye as life was easier without it.It was 3months before I drove and went back to work.
I didnt do a phased return which was a bad move as I had horrendous headahes as,how you feel pottering around at home is not realistic in terms of carrying out a full time job.
The first time was def my worst but after the 3 months I thought the vision was more or less ok (no steroids) but Ithink it continued to improve further over the next 9mnths.
The second time it was blurry without complete loss of sight, rather than totally random images and far less painful(again no steroids…I hate them) I do have to say now though it has never come back as well as before but then again my ms in general has progressed so everything goes blurry at the slightest excuse.
I gave up driving in Oct, but you will know yourself if it is safe or not.The slightest doubt and dont risk it…and remember if you do drive somewhere eg shops,then do the shopping,will you still be able to drive back if you are alone? You need to test yourself first to see what happens with your eyes when you are tired.
I guess at 20 days in you have seen for yourself you have a way to go yet.I know its frustrating but there is nothing you can do to speed it up so chill,go with the flow and try to accept its going to take time. It is a good forced opportunity to learn new ways of approaching life and the things you do for when your little MonSter throws its next treat for you to contend with…although hopefully its years away.
