Did you mean why didn't the opthalmologist prescribe them for me? I don't know. He was only in my room 2 minutes, tops, all the time backing out the door. I really, really, really, don't know why he wouldn't listen. As I said, I was running down the hall behind him trying to ask.
The truth, I don't know if I can say this. He was a butthead. He also had a waiting room way too full of more patients than he could possibly take care of.
I guess his thing was just money, money, money.
The optician I saw earlier that told me the over the counter glasses would make my particular eyes worse did prescribe me some glasses but that was three years ago and my eyes are so much worse now.
I keep buying the wrong thing at the grocery store. I can't see the labels. I splurged on a casserole calling for diced tomatos. I could not see the part of the label that said they cointained hot peppers. With Ulcerative Colitis, I don't dare eat hot peppers. I buy tuna in water. I could see the fish and the word tuna. When I
opened it, it started slipping all over the place finally ending upside down on the floor. I had not been able to see that that can was packed in oil.
the dogs. I call animal control and a few have been caught. My daughter said "It must be a staus symbol out here in the country to have dogs that can kill." The people that have them a proud of their viciousness. In 2004 my son was out of town and I did not know about
animal control yet. I was trapped in my house for four days. A rottweiler and four others took a liking to my front yard! I could not even get to my car! It was kind of funny.
I would like to volunteer. That is really why I posted, to find out about
how you do things like that. I didn't mean to get off on my eye stuff. It's just that I'm lonlier now that I can't read and can't afford to go to the opthalmologist for over a year. I live in Central North Alabama.
My son has a great job and has to travel. He can be gone as long as ten days. When he is gone, I don't see another living soul for the whole time. That is bad for you. I read (I can see some things if they are big enough) something interesting about
that last week. It said your brain actually changes a little when you talk to another human being.
Ulcerative Colitis since about 1976
Pan colitis since at least 1994
30 years with UC and never had a flare until MD gave massive dose of Magnesiun while hospitalized for bronchitis. I had no family doctor so they had just assigned me to the house doctor. Then was hospitalized a few days for moderate flare. No flares since. But now I have a family doctor.
