I can hear ol’ Bones saying the words: “I’m a person not a robot, Jim!” Why do I hear those words, you ask? Well I’ll tell ya. It’s because I was trying to add some comments on a writing buddy’s blog, and couldn’t because I just couldn’t type in the weird letter combinations the site required! I must have tried about 15 times, and finally thought I’d have to just quit when suddenly I got the configuration right. (Yes I really wanted to jump up and down, but decided against it.)
Little things like that really frustrate me now because of my limited vision, but I mustn’t give into my feelings or I’ll restrict my blogging. Yesterday I visited with my son and daughter-in-law past dusk, and had to drive home through downtown Dothan, AL because downtown has street lights where the back country roads leading to Columbia do not. What I discovered from yesterday’s adventure is that I can do it. Yes, I get tired because it taxes my brain to have to concentrate so hard, but I CAN do it. And I also discovered that thanks to all those eye shots, my eyes are better which is a godsend considering I’m getting ready for Round 3 or a continuation of Round 2 of my shots. (At this point it really doesn’t matter what round it is because I need ’em and that’s that…)
At least thanks to the trip to Tallahassee, FL I now know that I have a leaky blood vessel in my right eye; so the shots … and the pain … and overcoming the fear are now a part of me, and as I previously said: “That’s that.” Onward!
