HEY!! I am still kicking don't count me out.
Since February 1, I have been dealing with "central serous retinopathy". Fluid build up in my left eye, more specificially the macula. I attached a picture of what it looked like, mine was a little worse that this picture. I had very little peripheral vision at all.
I was unable to see out of my left eye for most of February. One big black spot, sparkling, or blurring. It gave me bad headaches when reading anything. So I stayed off the computer as much as I could.
I got around 90% of my vision back by March. But excessive reading still gave me headaches.
According to the doctor the cause was likely my early years of kickboxing in college. Now it is multiplied by middle age. I told her I was only 43. She said thats middle age. I'm still in denial.
It has made a few things hard around here. No straining whatsoever. Lift restriction to 20lbs. I said WHAT? Tree balls are 350lbs. Luckily I have my dad around. It sucks to make your 72 year old dad do the heavy lifting. June 1st I should be back to normal.
No shooting guns, heavy impacts, running, etc. So I have been surviving, just not much computer time and no grunting.
I have been working on a few side projects that I will post pictures of here hopefully this week.
