It Happened Over Night...I Swear...

     I've received several emails from my MS "gal pals" since posting my insomnia spew...they've been gently reminding me my insomnia "could" be hormonal and not MS related...because I'm "at that age"!  Thanks, girls!  Unfortunately, you've only reminded me of yet ANOTHER topic of discomfort!!!  Something I like to call FORTY EYES.

     It seems like over night my arms have shortened and my eyesight has become...well...not as sharp as it used to be!  How does this happen?  One day I am reading just fine out of my prescription glasses (which I have worn since I was 9 years old), and the next, I am having to REMOVE them from my bulbous nose to see anything with small print up close!  I have officially developed OLD LADY EYES.

     Oh sure...I KNOW the scientific reason for this visual change.  Bottom line, in lay man's terms, the old eye muscles and iris have gone caput...given up...relaxed...petered out...AGED!

     I wish I knew how to age gracefully.  As a matter of fact, I wish I knew how to do anything gracefully!  But...I don't.  I'm just not happy about this visual change.  I refuse to get bifocals (if I even need them?) and I refuse to admit I simply can't read anything up close anymore with my glasses on!

     I'm searching EBay right now for arm extensions...LOL

I can see you will be needing full-time maintenance work from your ms gal-pals as we guide you thru your golden years.   The eyes are only the first thing to go!
