Thread Name: BS: my stroke anniversary
Subject: RE: BS: my stroke anniversary
The doctors told me that with my eye condition I'd never have 20/20 vision, even with glasses. Uncorrected amblyopia in one eye, other problems.
Then, about 20 years ago, an ophthamologist said he'd write the prescription if I wanted to try it. I did -- hell, it was just money. And I could SEE!! Clearly!! I still remember the clarity of the rocks in the asphalt in his parking lot!
Yeah, there were problems getting used to it. But I've adjusted and I can see clearly now (hmm, there might be a song in that). No, my vision isn't corrected to 20/20, but it is something like 20/20 and 20/30. I can live with that.
I think that the brain and the body are one helluva lot more adaptable than we give them credit for being.
Go for it! Only sin is lack of tryin'!
