I’ve gotten into the bad habit of not turning off audio when I go to type these things. Someone talking right into your ears disrupts your ability to think & mine is already impaired at the moment. It just happens that stopping the noise has started to feel like I’m not doing something I could be while doing something that shouldn’t require all my attention. It’s a false feeling brought on by constantly having things I need to be doing, but it still gets in my mind. I should be beyond having to remind myself to focus on important things, but apparently I’m not. At least I still have sense enough to realize when I should do it.
I bought new glasses a while back. The experience wasn’t very good. I let it slide because I don’t like making a fuss & everyone is under a lot of stress with the covid. I’ve been wearing the new glasses for all that time since & they weren’t quite right. But I’m getting old enough that some degradation of my sight should be expected so I thought maybe this is how things should be. Today I decided it wasn’t. I didn’t buy new frames & I kept my old lenses, so I put them back in. In a matter of moments I went from feeling sleepy and unfocused to feeling just generally better. My eyes weren’t tired. I still need new glasses, but I also need to find a better eye doctor to get them from. So that’s something I’ll be doing… eventually. I now have the perspective of terrible glasses so my older slightly wrong ones don’t seem nearly as bad as they did previously.
Anyway, glasses cost money. Maybe become a patron if you like my work so I can buy another pair.
