For a few months, okay more like a year, I've procrastinated seeing the Optometrists to get my eyes checked.
I've always worn glasses for reading and things like that. My current glasses weren't working for me so finally today Ricky (my Hubby) and I went together to get our eyes checked.
I went first. I wasn't nervous, I just explained everything in detail about the issues I was having and the doc did his thing and before I knew it, he was done with all of the head gear or whatever you call that stuff he uses…lol!
As he's talking to me he's saying my eyes are working very hard to focus and because of my “birthday” (hint hint) it's completely normal to be having this issue after years of eye strain from the computers.
He goes on to say that I must always wear my glasses from now on.
“You need something that will serve 2 functions. You need to be able to read a book, and look up and read something far away. Your eyes can no longer do both without assistance from gasses….”
“Wait, I'm sorry are you saying I need bi-focals?”
He smiled and said…”Yes!”
“I don't understand, I'm only 33 years old! I don't want to wear those yet!”
He and Ricky laughed! I did too but inside I almost wanted to cry.
Since I hit my 30's 3 years ago I always wondered when it would hit me that I was the big 3-0…lol but yesterday it hit me!
I'm a grown up! I wasn't sad just taken back. I don't know how to explain it, but I'm happy to be here doing what I love.
As I sit in my bed and type this email to you I'm smiling because I feel like the luckiest woman on earth to have someone like you to share my knowledge with!
I'm in no way old, but I'm getting seasoned the older I get and I'm shedding tears of joy!
