The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears

This is probably my hardest post to write yet .... it feels like if I write this down then I'm bearing my naked soul to the world. I feel like people will judge saying that there are people worse off than me, it's not like I'm dying. But this is how I feel and if it helps just one person to get through their major surgery or vision loss and to know that someone else out there felt the same way, then here's my soul.

Tears are such a personal thing, something we do when life has beaten us down and we want to disappear to a secret place and nurture our soul.

I'm not sure if the anesetic has played a part by affecting my emotions as it leaves my system or if it really is an emotional upheaval but tears seem to still be my first point of response to any situation. Even writing some of these blogs I've been tearing up, my best friend who runs Digital Stuff and I were in tears as we put the first few pages of this website together, it's such an emotional and scary ride. Excluding the fact that I had the perfect life just two years ago, and now I'm fighting to have even a small amount of that life back, I'm also putting all of my heart and soul in to Insight to Sight so that I can help myself and hopefully help others out there who are going through the same thing.
