Meandering Through Minnesota, Virtually

Fit To Ride

Awareness of the outside world. I have cataracts. I feel old. Yes, I had to get glasses. Young people wear glasses. Yes, I have gray hair. I started going gray at nineteen. Cataracts are an old word. Doc most unperturbed. Small. Nothing to be done yet. Everyone gets them. That’s all well & good but I still feel old, thank you very much. In related news, does anyone else get knocked out by the eye-dilating drops? I was exhausted. Felt like a junior version of the epinephrine hangover. [All Revved Up]

  1. I’ve worn glasses since I was 10. My cataracts have been “just starting” for 30 years. As of last February, they’re “very slight.” Correction surgery is getting faster and better all the time. Mom started going gray at 16 (and dyed her hair for many years, her natural color was silver gray). Her sister had jet black hair into her 80s. Grey hair is not just age related. I’m 67 and only started going gray a few years ago.
    Don’t feel old, please. Look at how much you do all the time. You’ve always seemed young to me. There are times I feel ancient. And others when I wonder what that number that marks my name is supposed to mean.
