Aging

I just had to take off my glasses to read fine print.

This is likely a bad thing.

Ouch. I have this strong suspicion I'm getting old.

The fact that my sciatica moved from my right leg to my left today only further confirms this hypothesis.

Strange that old for me in an eye sense was getting glasses, cheap ones from Walgreens, whereas you're taking yours off.

Let me just say you ain't seen nothing yet with respect to old-related changes.

I guess the only thing worse than getting old is not getting old.

I'll go along with you on that.

Bear in mind, I've worn glasses since I was four. I have amblyopia, an astigmatism, and have a right eye that is far sighted and a left eye that is near sighted.

So basically, I have all the fun in one little human body!

But all that aside, living is much better than the alternative, for sure.

I still miss my Wendi.

When you're nearsighted like me, taking off the glasses works, so you must be nearsighted. I now have the progressive lenses in my glasses and still have to take them off if I want to read something really small. Of course, this is why I will never get Lasik surgery. I like having the option of taking off the glasses to read tiny print!

I don't have sciatica but have plantar fasciitis. I can hardly walk! I know it will pass but it's getting on my nerves.

Maui, well, the whole nearsighted/ farsighted thing is where I get interesting, as noted above, LOL.

But yes, my dominant eye (70% of field of vision) is nearsighted, so likely that's why the glasses off thing works.

But my farsighted eye doesn't like the tiny print either. Closing my right eye doesn't work. Taking the glasses off doesn't work.

Basically, my left eye was born pissed off and has stayed that way.

Sciatica sucks, but plantar fascitis isn't any fun either (my brother has it as a complication of his cauda equina). Ugh. You have my sympathies there.
