Ups and Downs Part Two
When I wrote the first part of Ups and Downs the trees were just greening and now for part two the trees are ablaze with color ……. an interesting corollary to my life events. From two simple cataract operations, to spiking a seriously high blood pressure, from no medications for years, to daily, strong, annoying meds for the blood pressure, glare blindness, to more swelling at the back of both eyes, to dimming of the vision in both eyes, it’s been several months of ups and downs, ins and outs and days tinged with anger, sadness, loneliness and fatigue. But I Won’t Give Up on me, to paraphrase a popular song, even though skies get rough.
There’s much to do and more to learn on ways to accommodate and acclimate myself to even lower vision. I’ve already put several things in motion. For me, doing something is much more energizing than sitting around ruminating about things although sometimes you have to give yourself a shake.
I’ve written my next post already so it won’t be so long next time. I’ll talk about my latest low vision exam and how I can see my birds at the feeder again. Stay tuned.
