Re: Another OT

Neither actually. The specialist my parents took me too said I grew so
fast that my eyeballs literally got stretched (front to back) to the
point that nothing will focus on the retina. But the deterioration
slowed down on it's own when I quit growing. Since I don't ever remember
having 20/20 vision, it's not like I really miss it. Must admit it would
be nice to be able to read street signs and such, but oh well - I
manage. I found my way to Jesse's and to Hot Springs this past summer,
so obviously I've learn to compensate. But I'm grateful for what I do
have. Being alone I have to be able to manage myself. So I feel blessed
regardless. Thanks for your concern, haven't told that story in many
