Well, I am back to being functionally blind again. As some know, the monitor to our main computer died around two weeks ago, which kept my online activities to a minimum because of my eyesight still not being good enough to easily work on the computer in our living room. Last Friday (November 6th) the 23” Vizio television we ordered on Amazon.com came, and I was able to get a lot of online stuff done. We went with the small television set because it was $70 cheaper than what Dell wanted for a new monitor like our old one.
Anyway, all seemed to be going well, but when I got out of bed the next day, my eyesight was back to being like it was before I started receiving the Abastin shots to dry up the excessive blood and fluids collecting in the back of my eyes due to diabetic complications. I do not know what may have went wrong. For I have been faithfully taking my Lantus/insulin shots, and my blood sugar checks have all been under 170, with most being much closer to 100. I am thinking that it may have something to do with my cataracts, but it won’t be until the 19th of this month before I see the eye doctor again.
Since this setback has taken all of the fun out of my online activities, I am unfurling the white flag of surrender for now. No, I do not plan on it being permanent, but I really hate not knowing from one day to the next if I can visit your sites and really see what you have to offer. Yes, I can use the magnifying tool to better see what is on the screen, but this is very disorienting to me. Leaving comments is even more of a nightmare. For I can barely see the keyboard.
All of the posts I have prescheduled for publication until the first of the year will be left in place, but I will not blame you for not commenting. I will do my best to leave replies, and I really do appreciate the comments. Nonetheless, fair is fair. Oh, and I will keep trying to send out Sites To See and A Sunday Drive notices so that those so inclined will not think that I am trying to steal their stuff. Sigh.
Be assured that I am very hopeful about getting get back into the swing of things much sooner than later. Of course, even if my eyesight became 20/20, it would still not be quite like it has been for the last several years because of working on the new site and widget. Alas, just when I think the path is clear to proceed, anther mountain springs up.
