One or two of you might have noticed that in the past few months my posts have been sparse at best. As I have mentioned before once or twice I have a history of low vision. Well, without going into detail, lately my vision has gone into rapid decline. I have to rely exclusively on voiceover text-to-speech to use the computer. This means no GPO, no DP, and little use of the computer except for email and a few internet sites like this forum that are friendly to this kind of software.
So I don't know how much I'll be able to contribute. These events may spell the need for a dramatic lifestyle change. Things seem to have stabilized now, so it doesn’t look like I'll lose everything. At least for a while I wont be running into or tripping over too many things.
Bummed out is just not bad enough to express how things feel. It's really hard to be as cheery as I wish I could be. But in 2 weeks I have an appointment with one of the best retina specialists in the country. Perhaps he will bring some good news.
I want to thank all of you who have been so kind and gracious over the past couple of years since I have been a part of this wonderful forum. I've made several lasting friends here, and you all don't know how often your music, humor and friendship have brightened my days.
Please don’t bother with a lot of replies. This is by no means a goodbye. I'll be thinking of you and keeping up with everything. We all have to deal with life as it is. Sometimes it's grand and sometimes it sucks. This is just a little sucky part of mine right now.
OK Styxx, tell us a little joke to brighten thins up.
Bless you all,
