Entering Into Darkness!
Last updated: March 2022
I was an active electrician about 7-8 years ago when my Walmart optometrist called and said I had to go to IA City immediately because of a vision problem. Thus began my story of wet macular degeneration.
Eye injection schedule
Until last year, I made the trek to get shots in my eyes every 6 weeks or so. By word of mouth, a doctor who gave shots was only 30 miles from home, so we switched over, and I am doing well. Every 4 weeks or so I get shots. I would not take an electrical job, but get along well on the farm.
Trying not to dwell
I am 80 yrs old and because I don't hit the nail every time is frustrating, my theory is not to dwell and to continuing as much as I can. Probably one of my most frustrating things is not being able to find a magnifying glass to be able to see the checkbook numbers!!!! I take eye vitamins every day.
Do you find that fear interferes with your ability to regularly go to eye specialist appointments?
