On the Eve of Eye Treatment Days

As the day before Wet Macular Eye Treatment Day finds its way into the higher numbers on the clock, the voices in my head grow louder, speaking through clenched teeth: ”What if it hurt tomorrow?” ”What if the hemorrhage has grown larger?” “What if he nicks a blood vessel again?” ”What if the needle slips, and I […]

Let’s Talk Eyeball to Eyeball, part 1

Now listen, let’s cut right to the chase: difficult people are one thing, stupid people are one thing, but abusive, controlling, manipulative people are quite another, and you need only stay in relationship with them long enough to be able to get out safely.
