In the last 3-4 months, I’ve gone legally blind in the right eye. I made an appointment with the doctor after realizing I couldn’t always read the word ‘Stop’ on the big red sign at the end of our dirt road.
After the appointment,I googled my brand new disorder and found out “..[retinoschisis]… is manifested in two types namely, the senile kind and the juvenile sort”. The blurry vision doesn’t bother me nearly as much as having any part of my body classified as ‘the senile kind.’
I made a mental note to not let the teenager in the house know about this.
