Update on the eye floaters!

Hi guys
Just thought I'd update on the situation, didn't know if it might help anyone...
Have written a few posts on these damn eye floaters in last couple of weeks!
Went back on Citalopram and am in the process of sorting out some CBT. Although I'm still seeing the floaters everyday, I'm not anywhere near as anxious about them and am slowly learning to accept them.
This may sound silly to some but is a massive improvement from where I was 3 weeks ago.
I still have bad days where I wish they would go and I hate them so much for intruding on my vision but I'm also having good days where they don't bother me like they did and I just think "screw you!" I won't let you get me down!
I still welcome any positive stories from others as this website has been an absolute god send - I have found so many kind people willing to take time out of their day to speak to me and reassure me.

Glad you are feeling more positive about them.

I remember reading one of your threads. Glad to hear you are getting less anxious about them smile

Oh good! Glad to read this! Remember - they won't actually DO anything to you, they're not dangerous and in time, they'll become a mild irritant and then tin won't see them anymore

Keep up the good work!
