In 20 days I celebrate the painful passing of my sweet, beloved Uncle Manny. Oh God, I miss him so much, but this year I've worked really hard in convincing myself that when people go, it's to rest in eternal peace, joy, and happiness- everything we couldn't find in living form on Earth. =)
But anyway, I have good news, bad news, and middle ground updates. Good or bad first? Let's go with the bad.
Bad news, I went to get a glasses prescription because I felt ready to obtain a driver's license. Well, in order to get a permit, I definitely needed glasses so there I went, only to realize that I have lost vision on the upper range of my left eye due to an optical tear that happened I don't know when and hasn't healed completely. From there, I went to an ophthalmologist, and they saw a weakening of the nerves and possible detachment thereof. It has been the hardest news to realize that my vision is going, and I cannot imagine my life with half-vision, but I think I've come to terms with it. I have a follow-up check up in February of next year and the ophthalmologist hopes that with my new glasses, my eye will heal a little better. Fingers crossed, positive thoughts, and discipline to eat healthy and wear my glasses every day!
Good news, the reason I wanted a driver's license was because I finally got a car. It's a Datsun 280ZX and I named her Lisa. She's absolutely gorgeous. I'll post photos soon.
Middle ground update, I can't get a driver's permit (let alone a license) until my eye's get their shit together. Haha.
That's it for the update. I can't complain. Me and my Charlotte can conquer the world. Bahaha.
