It Keeps Getting Better!

Just a quick update on my health.... I found out I have a scratched cornea to go with my glaucoma in my left eye... I'm now on five different medications for my left eye... Fun stuff, yes?

Anyway, that's it for now.... I apologize for any typos but my vision's a bit blurry... ;)

An update...

So... I've been back to losing weight for a month now and I've shed over 10 lbs. Unfortunately, it's 10 lbs I'd already lost, once, but I'm down from 330 to 318 so I'm moving in the right direction. I recently read the book An End to Overeating by Dr. David Kessler and it was a real eye opener concerning why many of us overeat.

And, speaking of eyes, I had an appointment with my eye doctor today to check my glaucoma which is still running rampant at a pressure of 30 in my left eye (it should be around 20) and he says that if it doesn't come down with medication in the next month, I'm in for more eye surgery.

Physical health aside, my mental health is of a questionable nature right now as my ADHD daughter is driving me insane. Everything is a fight and a tantrum and I'm at my wit's end. We've got her on medication and in counseling and none of it seems to be working... I mean, the medication makes a difference, but it doesn't seem like enough...

I'm still unemployed so that's not helping me, mentally, either. I'm stressed and depressed and frazzled. I am continuing my pro bono stuff, though, hoping that I can add it to my resume and improve my chances of getting a decent job.

So, anyway, that's all for now.
