Age takes a toll on your body, and your eyes are no exception. This year at age 44 I went from crystal clear vision to feeling like I am blind as a bat when trying to read ingredients on a bottle or see the incoming caller on my cellular phone. Matter of fact at the last get together with some of my longest friends (since elementary school) we discovered that we all needed reading glasses.
( My elementary school friends and I all pose for a picture looking stylish.)
Then this past weekend I realized I should have brought a pair of reading glasses down by the pool when I went to go time for the swim meet and had to read the stopwatch. In any event I’m glad my eyes have lasted this long as many of my friends were already using reading glasses for awhile. I was one of the last ones to cave in and buy a pair. Not being able to see can also be quite annoying at times. And to add to the matter the discussion between moms my age and slightly older this weekend was perimenopausal symptoms. Well I may be getting old but my heart is still young and fun…..
