I was diagnosed with Glaucoma 3 years ago. It has recently gotten worse.
I saw my specialist today, I am on medicated eye drops and will need a re-check on 3 months to scan my optic nerve for more damage.
I am fucking scared to death.
But nobody realises it. People close to me may have noticed that I am quieter than normal – maybe more fragile and antagonistic than normal. But nobody knows what I am feeling, nor do they care.
And that is the lesson here – in a world filled with pain and trauma 24/7 no one has time to be concerned with an unsuccessful older artist going blind. Everyone has their own fights to contend with. “Ain’t Nobody Got Time Fo Dat.”
And so it goes –
Until next time …
