Good morning. How is everyone handling the time change this morning? Of course, I'm not doing too well, with it, but I never do so it's nothing unusual. We've gotten up to another cold, windy morning and it seems the best thing to do is stay inside, but that's not going to happen. We let the cold keep us in yesterday, so we have to steel ourselves and go for it this morning.
Other than the cold, there isn't a lot going on here. I think I've mentioned that I joined a calligraphy guild back in the fall and although I haven't talked about it, I've been having a lot of trouble with forming the letters properly. I've always had really good handwriting and excellent eye-hand control, but suddenly, I've had trouble getting my letters to fall on the lines correctly, sometimes I'm seeing more than one line, other times lines that are supposed to be there, disappear, etc. The problems with my writing really bothered me so I decided I needed to do something about it. Along with that, I've been noticing for a while that it always seems dark unless I'm in bright sun... I've known for some time that I have cataracts and we've only been waiting for them to "ripen" so they can be removed, so of course, my first thought was that it might be time for that to happen. I made an appointment with my eye doctor to have them checked and he agreed that it's time to check further and he referred me out for the major cataract work-up. That appointment is coming up on Friday.
If the problem isn't coming from visual problems, it could be neurological - a progression of the issue that caused my peripheral neuropathy and neurogenic bladder and other issues. Fortunately, so far the problem hasn't affected my memory, thinking, comprehension, driving, etc. I do have my annual appointment with my neurologist coming up so if the eye appointment isn't productive, I can talk bring it up to the neuro.
All my other medical issues are the same, as I still haven't tackled those yet. I'm haven't figured out what I'm waiting for - just haven't decided to go back and start arguing the doctors again... I guess all that will come again in April when I see the new endo and have my next appointment with my pcp.
As with most everyone, I guess, we're trying to stay abreast of the news and hoping we don't come in contact with the coronavirus, which is in our state, as it is in many others. Stay safe and wash your hands often...
Anyway, I haven't weighed this morning, but on Friday, I was down 1 full pound from last Sunday, so I'll take that and hope it keeps going in the right direction.
So what about you? I hope you've accomplished everything you set out to do.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful successful week~~
