I'm the Gingerbread Man

Before I even get up each morning I reach for my Kindle to check the time, then I drag the ole body out to the kitchen and take my MD eye vitamins.

I grab a bite (healthy bite, of course) and settle down with a cuppa and my Kindle. Every day I check my Amsler Grid for any changes, but I don't let the crazy squiggles on the grid stop me from charging ahead and making the best of it.

There's lots I can't see, but there is still much I can see and enjoy. I've got 20/800 (yes, that's correct ) in one eye and 20/80 in the other, GA in both, but I intend to remain optimistic as long as I can. I'm like the Gingerbread Man. You can't stop me from forging ahead.
