Oh dear, it has just hit home to me that older people are rarely ever not at the dentist, the eye people, or the ear place. We spend a fortune on them. Tsk, tsk.
I have just been told that if the new eye drops I have been given (last ditch attempt to fix the problem) do not work before my next appointment on 11 November then I will have to immediately give up driving. For the rest of my life!
Grrrrhh. My booked summer South Island road trip is in complete jeopardy. All my future-years' summer road trips are in jeopardy. Just driving to the nearby suburb of Kilbirnie is in jeopardy.
If I'm told I won't be able to drive, well, that's it then; I'll put on a brave face.
However, I'm admitting to you, my four beloved readers, that I'm a wee bit frightened.
