I just returned from the eye Doctor and I had mentioned to her that I have been seeing some flashing in the lower right corner of my right eye that I was concerned about. With a smile, she told me basically I am getting old. (YES!!!! Now my day is complete!!!!)
Apparently, this is common when the gel behind your eye is moving around as we age.
(BONUS!!! I LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT GELS AND CRAP IN MY BODY TRYING TO ADAPT TO MY ANCIENT SELF!!!)
That, combined with needing to hold things away from my eyes JUST A LITTLE BIT, are things I have to look forward to as I get older.
(NOT to say this is happening but its what I have heard :)
I guess today is the first day of me getting older.
On the bright side, I am not suffering from a brain tumor that causes flashing vision. (So I needlessly have been worrying about that for a week, which probably caused more grey hair and wrinkles - another lovely sign of aging. I just can't win.)
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
Have a wonderful day!
