Today I purchased and downloaded Wu’s Eye Qi Gong. These are seven videos with eye exercises to help with the health of the eyes. As I have just been diagnosed with ERM – Epi-Retinal Membrane or Cellophane Maculopathy, my eyes are of great concern to me. I am having a lot of trouble seeing. The trouble is in my left eye. When I am reading, there are a lot of “smudged” spots and everything is wavy. My regular (not reading) vision is a bit blurred, wavy, and focusing is a problem; and I am especially struggling with driving. Even just regular vision, I am seeing a lot of blurring. No clear or crisp at all. Emotionally, I am very upset and concerned that I am not going to be able to drive. Which, specifically, means all these years of dreaming, while taking care of dad, of one day having a small RV and traveling and seeing all 50 states, and even 100 countries, will never happen, because I cannot see, or drive and cannot focus and have headaches. That I will spend all of my life, as I have spent all these years – alone, in a room – with no vision to see or ability to focus. Also, I am still experiencing an on-going headache. I am writing these notes down here and now, and after working with these exercises for a few months, I can refer back to these notes and compare how my vision is doing and how my emotions are feeling.
Reading online I see the correct verbiage is: “blurry and distorted” central vision.
Bill and his son Kevin had brought over a life-size statue of a beautiful, very life-like dog to dad and I a couple of days ago. But, all dad and I could do was cry and achingly miss our little Luigi, so thankfully, we were able to give the statue dog back to Bill. He was very understanding.
I went to Walmart this morning, and dad and I went to Lucky’s this afternoon.
Tonight I am going to take some pictures I had developed over to Eleanor. They are cute pictures of Eleanor and Luie. Then I am going line dancing at the clubhouse.
