So, I’ve just returned from the eye doc ….. and I’ve an explanation for my eye difficulties. And, explains some other things. Usually my response to adversity is to try harder. Yes, I’m one of the guys who will bloody himself going through a wall rather than go around, if I believe the best path is where the wall happens to be. Oddly, trying harder doesn’t fix visual acuity. As it turns out, I’ve developed cataracts in both eyes. The worse being in my good one. My left eye never was very good. Doc says I should have surgery tomorrow.
Meanwhile, for today, doc put a bunch of crap in my eyes, and now I’m seeing even worse than usual. The bad news is I’ve just started a job. ….. funny stuff, it requires good visual acuity, so they hired the blind guy! 😀 So, I’ll have to discuss with them what and when …. etc. I think they’ll be very understanding and cooperative. My work, so far, I think has been pretty good. People can compensate if need be.
The good news is that the way the doc is talking, after the surgeries, I should be able to see better than I have for years!! I’m very excited! I had nearly resigned myself to ever diminishing eyesight. Heck, I may even pick up a cue stick again!!! Putting hook on the end of my line might not be such a frustrating experience anymore!!! But, best of all, I may be able to start blogging like I wanted.
As mentioned, for today, my vision isn’t even as good has the horrible vision I usually have so, I’ve decided that I’m not going to bang up against that wall tonight. I may write a couple of posts, or I may indulge in daydreaming about seeing properly, again!
I don’t like writing about personal crap, but, many readers I’ve come to know as friends, and I thought I should let people know what’s going on.
In the meantime for your listening pleasure …..
And because I like Jackson Browne
Did you know he used to play with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band? I had no idea. I’ve always liked both, but, Browne’s style is so different.
